The Problem was Not You: Twitter was Falling This Afternoon

Until just now, it was difficult to use Twitter. The site underwent instability both on the web version and on mobile devices. Around 15h, the service went off the air, and when trying to access it, users found a login page that invariably redirected to the error page.

The problems lasted about 40 minutes, with some users having access back before others. In some accounts, it was possible to publish and read the timeline, but without seeing interactions. Other users trying to access their accounts, just received the friendly maintenance message below:

The support announced only that it was working to resolve the problem. The last message is 20 minutes ago, and despite being solved now, was not disclosed the reason for the instability.

MOST USERS WERE IMPACTED BY THE SERVICE OUTAGE WHEN ACCESSING TWITTER VIA WEB AND MOBILE APPS. SERVICE IS RESTORED. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE!

In any case, the good news is that Twitter came back and you can cuss a lot again.
