Fail whale surfaces again: Twitter goes down
Oh no! Information addicts were distressed to find Twitter down again for the better part of an hour Thursday morning.

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.
