Sometimes love is so powerful it can take out a server or two. Today, as the Mac faithful gathered in San Francisco for the Apple event today, they tweeted CEO Steve Jobs’ appearance, the new product announcements, and their overall rapture, causing Twitter to stagger during the hours of 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. PDT, according to data from web performance firm AlertSite. Apple and Jobs were No. 1 and No. 2 in trending topics on the site, and AlertSite saw Twitter’s performance degrade to 90 percent as twitterpated fanboys turned to microblogging as an outlet for their joy. Below is the graph showing the degradation of Twitter’s availability during the event.
