Twitter is down so share this on Facebook I guess?
What on Earth is happening? First Reddit goes down in the morning and now Twitter is also busted?
Starting at around 2:46 p.m. ET, Twitter.com started having issues with its website. Down Detector (which is owned by Mashable’s parent company, Ziff Davis) reports major outages on Twitter’s website as well as issues with the iOS and Android app.
Several Mashable writers (including myself) have confirmed the iOS app is not working as well.
Where the heck are people supposed to complain about an online service being down if Twitter, the main place to do it, isn’t working? Facebook? Instagram? Text?
We’ve reached out to Twitter to get to the bottom of the outage and a spokesperson pointed us to their status site, which says the company’s aware of the “active incident.”
“We are currently investigating issues people are having accessing Twitter. We will keep you updated on whats happening.”
Following an investigation, Twitter says the downtime was “due to an internal configuration change”:
The outage was due to an internal configuration change, which we’re now fixing. Some people may be able to access Twitter again and we’re working to make sure Twitter is available to everyone as quickly as possible.
