You just mocked the essential point of this whole question. Drives if they fail (other than from abuse) will usually fail in the first few days of use. My question is why are you here mocking anything at all?
This used to be a place to learn interesting technology from interesting and smart people. You won't notice that none of them are still around and there aren't even any good stories on the front page anymore "because you just showed how stupid you are on the internet".
Twitter is a fundamentally stupid idea. It is like trying to run all of the mailing lists in the world from one server (and by 'like' I mean exactly the same) The end result is half as useful and twice as shitty. Seriously, write a web2.0 listserv interface and you will amaze tweeters. You can tweet with email holy cow!
Yes, it's a mailing list, suprise!
Mommy, what happens to your files when you die?
