Jobs may have been partially responsible for the collapse of the popular ‘micro-blogging’ service. He mentioned Twitter during his keynote speech and, “boom”, within moments the service collapsed.
Users of the notoriously volatile website were met with blank pages alerting them to a "HTTP Server Error 503" when they tried to log on, though the problem was fixed after around 15-minutes, though the service wasn’t fully up to speed, with users complaining their @ message pages were failing to refresh.
Apple, Steve Jobs and iTunes 9 all rocketed to the top of Twitter’s "trending topics" list.
Apple’s beaten Twitter before: the service also fell over during the January keynote earlier this year.
