Is Twitter down?

Apica’s checks* confirm that Twitter.com experienced an outage beginning at 11:23 a.m. EDT. It remained completely down until 12:04 p.m., recovered briefly, and then became unavailable again at approximately 12:15 p.m. At 12:58 p.m. Twitter started delivering server-side error codes — or a “Twitter is currently down” message to some users.

TWITTER OUTAGE: Lights go out for Twitter users on Thursday morning

Twitter doesn’t appear to be completely out of the woods just yet. Users along both coasts continue to experience problems connecting. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and provide performance updates throughout the afternoon.
