If you are having issues with your Twitter client, it’s not just you. Twitter has issued a few statements confirming that the service is down for many users. The official Twitter support account states, “Some users are currently unable to log in to their accounts. We are aware of this issue and our engineers are working to fix it.”
No official word on why the service has been hit with disruptions is available at this time. Twitter also failed to mention if the downtime is only for the United States or if it is happening around the globe. At least you know that it isn’t your setup this time, in the past the service has been restored after outages fairly quickly.
