Twitter is “Down for Maintenance” [Updating]

twitter down

I was trying to access my Twitter account this afternoon, and I was having trouble. When I went to Twitter, it prompted me to the sign in page, which doesn’t usually happen because I always stay logged in to my account. After attempting to log in to my account, I was taken to an error page stating that “something is technically wrong.”

Apparently, there is something funky happening because now there is an error message when visiting the website alerting people to the Twitter downtime: “Twitter is currently down for maintenance. We expect to be back shortly. For more information, check out Twitter Status. Thanks for your patience!” Visiting the Twitter Status page, you can see a message that says there is currently a “service issue.”

Unfortunately, I usually use Twitter to see if other people are experience service outages for various services (like Gmail, Facebook…etc), but obviously, with Twitter down, I wasn’t able to do that. Perhaps because many of my friends aren’t active on Twitter, I didn’t even see any friends posting about the Twitter downtime.

Update: It appears that the issue has been resolved. After looking a second time, it does not look like service has been fully restored yet.

Update 2: “Service is restored” according to a tweet from Twitter Support a few moments ago.
