Yes, Twitter Is Down. Again.

Yes, Twitter Appears To Be Down

This used to be a fairly regular occurrence but it’s the first time it’s happened in this manner for a while. (Recent outages have been more terminal, with the network being completely inaccessible.)

Hopefully it won’t be too long before it’s back up and running again.

1900 GMT: Replies appear to be working and appearing in your mentions folder. Reply somebody and if they reply you back, you should see it. (Thanks to @trniii for the tip.) You can also see updates by visiting profiles directly, or by using Twitter search.

Meantime, Twitter has updated their status blog with a report on the problem and is looking into it.
