Site availability issues 5 hours ago
We are experiencing site availability issues — additional latency and errors — this morning. We’re working to address these issues.
Update: 9:07 PDT / 16:07 UTC: Users may notice that their timelines are updating slowly. All tweets will eventually be delivered.
Update: 9:32 AM PDT / 16:32 UTC: To help stabilize the site we’re turning off a set of features including but not limited to: Twitter Search, hovercards, web sidebar data (trends, friends counts, etc), and profile image uploads.
Update 9:57 AM PDT/ 16:32 UTC: Timelines are now current. Various other features remain disabled.
Update 10:34 AM PDT / 17:34 UTC: All site features have been re-enabled. Latency and error rates are recovering quickly.
Update 12:29 PM PDT / 19:29 UTC: We’ve identified the cause of today’s incident as an error with networking equipment. This networking error prevented us from serving at full capacity.
Site Availability Issues 1 day ago
We had a system-side issue this morning starting around 0800 Pacific that resulted in twitter.com experiencing two 30 minute back-to-back incidents over roughly one hour. The problem has largely been addressed, but we aren’t quite to 100 percent yet.
