Tumblr experienced extended outage

Posted by iwgcr

Yahoo-owned Tumblr experienced errors affecting the entire blogging network for more than three hours, the company revealed January 13 2014.

The company first alerted its members to the issue on Twitter at 12:02 p.m. Pacific. By 12:22 p.m., the problem still hadn’t been fixed, but Tumblr apologized for what it called “intermittent errors” and said that it hoped to be back in service soon. The errors, however, took several hours to fix and seemed to be contained by 3:29 p.m.

“There was a compatibility issue during an upgrade,” a Tumblr spokesperson said. “We are aware of the issue and in the process of correcting.”

Finally, the company posted an update on Twitter at 3:35 p.m. PT stating that the issues were resolved.
