Twitter was down again for more than 40 minutes on Thursday morning although as of 7:58 a.m. PDT it appears to be functioning again.
Some online speculated that this is a broader problem, citing issues with the AirBnb and FourSquare sites, but there is no further information on that. The Amazon Web Services status page, which is a go-to site when issues occur, shows no problems as of 8 a.m. PDT Thursday. Then again, Twitter doesn’t run on AWS, so there’s that. Earlier in the morning sites like downforeveryoneorjustme confirmed that Twitter was down for the count. There have been a couple Twitter snafus in recent weeks, including on Inauguration Day.
We will update this story throughout the day.
