It doesn’t happen that often anymore (that’s the actual story!), but Twitter.com is down. For the count. As of the time of publishing, it’s been down for about Forty Five minutes. We’ve checked Twitter’s standing web page on Tumblr, however there’s nothing there. We’ve also reached out to Twitter for comment and can UPDATE you when we hear back.
Twitter’s cellular apps and Tweetdeck seem unaffected, so go ahead and tweet your heads off from your non-Laptop non-web browser device setups. Any downtime for an actual-time provider like Twitter is a disruption, especially as a result of a number of news breaks on the platform, so this outage is the same as landlines without a dial tones.
Don’t fear. Monday is a pain within the ass for anyone, Twitter.
Let me take this opportunity to once again pine for the days of the fail whale (design, no longer downtime)…
REPLACE: The Desktop Version is up and down with some parts of the websites still exhibiting that it’s down. No word as to what happened, but we’ll REPLACE if we hear one thing.
UPDATE 2: It’s again.
