Macworld Slashdots Twitter?

Dude, what's wrong with Twitter. They have been slashdotted by a mere Macworld? And with less than a million registered users? Why can't they keep up with these spikes? I am a beginner Tweeter (puneetx), and am not pleased at all to find that Twitter downtime is so common. How would thoughtful Twitter applications like EventTrack even work if the service is down during the event?

I hope Jaiku and others start becoming popular and this data portability thing starts working soon, so that we are not limited by the vagaries of Twitter.
