Micro-blogging website Twitter is facing, what can be called as one of its outage in India today. The Twitter app however, seems to be working fine on smartphones. The Twitter site is now down for about half an hour.
While the reason for the outage is not clear, we will have to wait for an official statement to know whether the outage is global. Twitter site, during the downtime, did not reload, despite refreshing several times.
Twitter last went down in January this year with its services failing across web and mobile platforms. The site suffered outage for over an hour and the company had confirmed the same in a service blogpost. Twitter’s APIs suffered form an ‘internal error’ and users couldn’t log in.
Twitter recently rolled out a new update which allows users to quote and retweet themselves. The company announced that it will simplify tweets in the coming months, making it faster and easier for people to express themselves in 140-characters.
Twitter says media attachments, such as photo and video, will no longer count toward character limit.
