Twitter Seems To Be Down

  • by: Maarten Schenk

UPDATE: seems like Twitter is back up and apologizing for the inconvenience. Hey, no big deal Twitter, we all have technical problems sometimes!


The popular Twitter social media site and service appears to be down for many users this morning. There are scattered reports of people still able to reach the site but many others are saying they are presented with a blank screen when trying to visit



Twitter's own status page makes no report of the downtime as of the time of publication:

Popular downtime tracking website is also reporting the site is down:

It's not just you! looks down from here.

We'll keep an eye on the situation. Come back here for updates, since checking our twitter account @LeadStoriesCom is probably not possible...
