Update: It now looks like Twitter has run into some problems with their application. The Twitter app has been crashing a lot within the last hour, and as such it reveals this social network isn’t as problem free as we first thought today.
The problems reported to Product Reviews seem to be targeting just the Twitter app at this time. We’ve see a lot of Tweets in regard to the app crashing, or just playing up and especially on iPhone. You can see a couple of these tweets below.

Facebook and Instagram glitch earlier today – Twitter is certainly up, as one quick look reveals hundreds of tweets within the last few minutes claiming both Instagram and Facebook is down today in certain USA locations. We did notice some problems with Facebook earlier today, but now there’s issues being felt in a number of US cities.
Some people are also commenting on the fact that Facebook now owns Instagram, and both of these services went down at the same time. Again, we can access both services fine in the UK and these are reports coming from US visitors to these social networks.
Facebook & Instagram down right now ðŸ‘€ðŸ‘€

It's also interesting that Instagram, a subsidiary of Facebook, is also down. Are they using the same data centre? #facebookdown

Are Facebook and Instagram not working for you today? If so, are your problems a total outage or just certain connection errors?
Even though we are not having issues in the UK, it’s evident by the tweets above that a lot of users are having problems. If this is you, then please leave a comment with what social network is causing you problems and of course the location you are in within the United States.
Since Facebook and Instagram is down, I guess you have to talk to your friends face to face now.

If you are in another country, then again share those details. We’ve reached out to both Instagram and Facebook about the downtime today.
Have you been having problems with the Twitter app within the last hour and if so, on what platform?
