Twitter packet loss

Massive packet loss between Bell and Twitter has been happening consistently for over a week now, between about 8pm and 1am Eastern. Current stats from mtr:

Still having exactly the same issue at exactly the same times. has nothing. It’s either Qwest (the 63.x hop) or Twitter itself (the 199.x hop).

    1. I feel like I’m back in 1982… 140 characters per second is just shy of 1200bps!

      I’ve even power-cycled the modem (to get a new IP) so it’s not just my particular session. Fortunately everything else continues to run at reasonable speed.
