All too often, it's misconceived that you must be a Twitter subscriber to read Twitter. This is false. You simply access a company's Twitter feed by the direct URL (http://twitter.com/jaguarpc in this example) and you can read what they've posted without having an account whatsoever. It's just a "micro-blog".
For companies who want to maintain an alternate means of reaching customers when all other methods are unavailable, a Twitter feed can be invaluable as a backup, but only if the customers are aware of it so make sure they can find it with search engines, and provide links on the site and common e-mail broadcasts.
He probably belives, just as I, that he doesn't live and die by twitter, facebook and other popular social media. Email is an invaluable source of communication and should be used first and foremost when a provider needs to communicate with their clients. If a client is unaware of a problem, how is a client to know to search out twitter, if they don't live "in the twitter bubble"?
Seems like jaguarpc is having a few problems as of late. I know they are a quality provider so I have faith they will have all if it sorted out soon. Sometimes, when it rains, it pours.
It looks like JaguarPC is currently running at it's fullest at this time. Although, JaguarPC's servers are very durable and they are always working with their clients to provide service with excellence. I currently have many servers with JaguarPC and they have proved alot in the many months i've been with them, from basic questions to implementing new security measures they were there with me. Although, like there support had told me earlier in the year. "It's technology, and sometimes it does fail or need human help in order to succeed."
I thought i'd share that with you guy(s). Have a wonderful rest of your day.
I think there's a big difference between fair criticism (2+ hours) and whining (5 minutes). Plus I thought the purpose of the outage/updates forum is for awareness, not complaining/reviewing. If 5 minutes kills your business, get a dedicated HA cloud at a premium datacenter.
