Just realized that Tweeting about Twitter being down is like the sound of one hand clapping. Weird, innit?
MERCURY NEWS: Twitter, the popular microblogging service, experienced technical difficulties Thursday morning that kept users from posting or accessing the site. The San Francisco company posted a message on its Status blog around 9:30 a.m. Pacific time that read “Users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue.” The site began having issues about 9 a.m. Pacific time Thursday morning, timing out for those attempting to access the website. Just after 10 a.m., users in the Bay Area reported that the service was again working for them, and Twitter updated its Status blog by 10:45 a.m. to say “The issue has been resolved and all services are currently operational.” Within minutes, however, that status was changed to say “The issue is on-going and engineers are working to resolve it,” as users again faced issues accessing the site.
