pingdom and twitter uptime: stats don’t lie?

Posted on: May 30, 2008

How do you get listed as having 97% uptime when your service was down for almost a full day in May?

97% sounds like a lot – pretty good in fact. Right?

The reality is that 1 day is around 3% of a calendar month. This means you can effectively take your service out for a full day each month and still claim 97% uptime (assuming no other outages during the month) .

Your customers, however, may not see it so positively
