Twitter down today, back up soon

It is not often that you will find Twitter go down, or Facebook for that matter, but today is one of those days that will see millions of Twitter users trying to access the popular social network and finding a broken page. The homepage will load occasionally although most of Twitter is down, so you can imagine the frenzy taking place in coffee shops, in offices, on the train, and many strange places where users love to place a quick tweet.

The Twitter status page doesn’t mention when the service will come back up, but they do inform users that the “Twitter Site Issue” is being worked on. In a quick update around 20 minutes ago Twitter explained users will experience issues accessing the service, although their engineers are working to fix the problems as soon as possible.

Are you having problems accessing Twitter, is it down for you? We have contacted a few of our work colleagues in Europe, and in the last few moments we have reports of Twitter being down in London, and Paris. What area of the world are you from, and how is Twitter running for you?

We’ll update you as we get more and at the time of writing we’re not sure if the downtime is affecting other related services, which includes the mobile apps. The outage has only started within the last hour, although it is not known how much longer things will take to fix or why the service went down in the first place.

Twitter’s growth over the last few years has been amazing, mostly due to celebrity adoption, and we did see frequent outages thanks to the heavy load. Twitter going down has since become something of a rare occurrence.
