Some users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue.

 

The downtime seemed to be sporadic, with users reporting being able to access the site on some tries but not others. The API also appears to have been down, as reports from users say their third-party Twitter clients are unable to pull data from the social networking site.

 

According to Twitter, the issue was caused by an error in a routine change.

 

Due to an error in a routine change, Twitter was not available from 1:08pm PDT to 1:33pm PDT. We rolled back the erroneous change as soon as we identified the issue. Additionally, some users may have experienced Tweet delivery delay from 1:33pm PDT and 1:53pm PDT. We apologize for the inconvenience.
