Update: For many, Twitter is now back to normal. Panic over.
After an evening of minor outages, Twitter is now completely out of action for users all over the world. Those heading over to the site will be met with a messages helpfully letting them know that there is “Something is technically wrong”.
The message also thanks you for noticing and assures you the company will “fix it up and have things back to normal soon”.
Of course, if you visited the site in the last hour you probably have already noticed this thanks to the fact that you were not instantly met by the usual dose of puppy and brunch photos.
Twitter’s @Support tweeted –
Some users are currently experiencing problems accessing Twitter. We are aware of the issue and are working towards a resolution.
But yes, you guessed it, most people won’t be seeing this until the service is back up – so thanks to The Independent for getting the message out.
