#TwitterDown: Twitter outage sparks social media meltdown
NEW YORK (Jan. 19, 2016) — Sorry, social media fans — you’ll have to tweet another time.
Twitter said in a statement early Tuesday that its social platform was experiencing technical difficulties.
“Some users are currently experiencing problems accessing Twitter. We are aware of the issue and are working towards a resolution,” the company said in a statement.
The social media platform had been down since about 3:30 a.m. ET, but showed some signs of life by 4:55 a.m. ET. Service was still sporadic.
Some social media users took to Facebook to express frustration about the outage.
“When Twitter is down, you can’t tweet that Twitter is down,” said Facebook user Lyndsay Pole in a post.
“it’s been a while since #TwitterDown,” posted Facebook user Carolyn Gray in a post.
