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. status.twitter.com has nothing. It’s either Qwest (the 63.x hop) or Twitter itself (the 199.x hop).

One thought on “Twitter packet loss

  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.
