For a social networking tool such as Twitter to experience an outage can be said to be an outrage for users, but to have the outage happen twice in a single month has been deemed as unacceptable to many. Apparently, there was another outage for the popular micro blogging service earlier today, where plenty of users ran into issues when they tried to access Twitter.com as well as third party mobile applications for Twitter, but it must also be noted that the Twitter service had also been restored to many users since then. Apart from that, the new video sharing service from Twitter known as Vine also had service disruption issues.
Twitter posted on their status blog earlier this morning, “Some users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue.” A similar message was posted on Inauguration Day as well, but on the whole, Twitter has managed to improve its service by a substantial margin over the years as they made efforts to increase their server capacity in order to cope with its growing user base. Is Twitter still down for you?
