Twitter appears to be down, for an unknown reason. This comes days after iMessage goes down due to technical issues.
The issue is also on the API, because the site does not load, and running TweetDeck, the feed is not running either. It also doesn’t allow me to tweet to Twitter from the client, meaning the entire service appears to be down.
This is quite a serious issue. As Mark Zuckerberg said about Facebook. If it goes down, even just once, the damage is irrecoverable. Let’s hope this is not the case for Twitter too.
It has not been down for long, and we expect some back up servers to kick into the effect soon and bring the service back online, but for now, there is no Twitter access at all.
We will keep you updated as much as possible about this story. The latest Twitter Trends will have to wait until another hour.
