The BIG surprise in this week’s top ten cloud computing Tweets is the absence of any good reports on yesterday’s Amazon outage! Yours truly (@thedodgeretort and @ecioforum) blogged and commented on it, generating five Tweets yesterday.  

So I need your help.  Who got it right? Please share in the comments below the best, Twitter, blog, video – any coverage of yesterday’s events!
