After an hour of sweet freedom, the world has been returned to the grasp of Twitter.

At about 2:50 pm ET, the desktop and mobile site were down, displaying a “Something is technically wrong” error. The app was also not working. The site returned at about 3:45pm ET but took a few minutes to regain full functionality.

Twitter’s status page said little more than that was an “active incident.” A spokesperson for Twitter confirmed the outage but referred us to the status page.

It’s not the first time Twitter’s had a hiccup in the past few weeks. The social media giant was hit by a direct message outage earlier this month. In fact between June and July, most of the major internet companies had some form of outage, knocking themselves or other sites offline in the process.




Please tweet about how it was down and how it’s hard to tweet about how Twitter’s down when it is itself down, and the irony therein.

We’ll patiently wait to hear from Twitter about the cause of the outage.
