Twitter Suffers Widespread Outage

Twitter suffers widespread outage

Micro-blogging service Twitter suffered an outage Thursday that affected users on multiple continents.

โ€œUsers may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue,โ€ the San Francisco-based company wrote in a blog post shortly after 8:30 a.m. Pacific time (2100 IST).

The service went dark for several hours in June. That episode revived fears that stability issues may once again be plaguing Twitter, which suffered frequent outages in its early years, but has claimed to have improved its infrastructure.
