Twitter said on Thursday that it is experiencing technical issues and is working to get the site back up soon.
The outage — which was first noticed at around 11:15 a.m. ET and had been down for about an hour — didn’t even displaying the company’s typical “fail whale” logo it typically posts during down times. The platform has since come back for some across the U.S (with limited functionality), while others are reporting that it is still down.
“We’re aware of the issue and are looking into it,” a Twitter spokesperson told Mashable. “We will let you know when we have an update, and keep an eye on status.twitter.com for updates as well.”
The company also posted a note on its blog informing members of the issue: “Users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter,” it said on the site. “Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue.”
It is not only experiencing an interruption with Twitter.com but also with some mobile clients. The outage appears to have taken out the t.co url shortener.
In the meantime, the site is telling its users: “Thanks for your patience!”
The news comes just weeks after Twitter experienced its biggest outage in eight months. It was also down for about an hour.
The story is developing.
