Engineers contending Twitter will slowly fail and grind to a halt aren’t doing anyone any favors

All their scenarios start with “it’ll be fine for a while then this hard drive will run out of space for logs and then”

And X,000 engineers didn’t have a contingency for that? (I get it, sometimes you just need to build more racks, but that process isn’t turnkey either?)

our industry was due for a reckoning and this is just another symptom of that

We’re not that important
