The long-awaited day has come.

Twitter, the 200 million user microblogging service, has filed for its initial public offering. Fittingly, the only public acknowledgement came in the form of a simple tweet.

"Long-awaited"? Wait, people actually waited for this?

Must not have a lot going on in their lives.

Maybe Twitter can fix their site so it isn't so broken / slow / screwing up on such a regular basis.

You might try a twitter app. If you mostly just read tweets and their embedded links, I'd suggest Flipboard.

It aggregates twitter and other data feeds, automatically including the link target, all intermixed and laid out in a magazine style that's easy to browse for interesting content by flipping through the pages (hence the name).

You can also easily and at no cost subscribe to (or create) virtual magazines on any topic. Some are quite unique - ultra-small houses, virtual currencies, and such. Great relaxation for the brain.

I've used it on both my iPad 1 and my Nexus 4, and it's the best value I've seen for the cost (free).

Recommended.

I don't want a workaround. Just fix the site.
