What's better than Twitter being free? Being reliable!

Connecting to Twitter tonight, I saw the attached screen indicating
that Twitter was down for maintenance. Sure, it wasn't the 'Fail
Whale' more usually seen a year or so ago:

But this wasn't the expected user experience.
Now does anyone else find it strange that one of the largest Social
Media platforms actually has to stop its service for some users to
carry out changes, etc?
Surely Twitter by now has worked out how to provide a 100% available
service to its users? You don't find Google or Facebook putting up
holding pages claiming they are unavailable....
