Twitter is down, but why?


Just a day after Twitter got caught up in an outrage cycle over whether or not it should allow leaks to a certain story and Senate Republicans floated the idea of sending a subpoena to CEO Jack Dorsey, the service is suddenly inaccessible for many people. While long-time Twitter users remember when the website’s “fail whale” made regular appearances, it’s usually stable these days, with the last major issue occurring as a result of that security breach in July.

Fatal Runtime Cherror

Twitter’s API status page now reports the company is “Investigating Irregularity with Twitter APIs,” while the feeds appear to have gone dark around 5:35 PM ET, as noted by outage tracker Down Detector. We’ve contacted the company and will update this post when there are more details available.

The number one question, as always when Twitter goes down, is where we can go to talk about it while Twitter is down? Facebook? Discord? Reddit? Of course, people like Roberto Baldwin may find relief in the silence.
