Twitter is currently experiencing technical difficulties

The super-popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter is currently down for many across platforms and on the web. Clients are failing to load timelines, profiles, tweets and more, while the main website is refusing to display anything other than a technical error message. On the bright side, it's not you, it's Twitter.

The company has acknowledged the issues by publishing a tweet many will have to access directly (if the website loads):

  • You might want to upgrade from that WP7 phone...
  • LOL. I'm on a Lumia 640 with Windows 10. The official twitter app was also awful on my Lumia 520, 635 and BLU Win HD before that. I was using Fenice for a while but it had trouble loading up my followers. I have actually never used or even seen a WP7 in real life lol.
  • Twitter is up, u can post things, but going to peoples pages including mine isn't updating and working. Things like your favorites, blocks also acts the same. The rest does work atm. UPDATE: twitter is completely down again.
