Web servers are expensive, and twitter is a website that is known world wide. It's not as easy as you might think to ensure that your website can handle that much traffic any given day. It's somewhat of a drawback to being successful. If twitter was seen as an obscure social network that had no shot at competing with the big boys, then it would most likely be online %100 of the time. But because people from all walks of life use it to break news, communicate with friends, and just goof around, you have times where their servers can't handle the load, and the big chubby Fail Whale shows up and ruins the fun.
