Twitter suffers an outage

Posted by iwgcr

For an interminable 40 minutes on Wednesday September 4 2013, some tweeters had to hit the pause button on their urge to share their thoughts.

Twitter said it resolved a brief outage that made it difficult for some users to access the micro-blogging service. The company, in a blog post, blamed the issue on a code-related error, which caused a number of Web servers to go down for about a half hour. Some users were unable to access the Twitter site during that time.

Access to Twitter via mobile apps was not affected.

A Twitter spokeswoman declined to comment beyond the content of the company’s blog post.
