Is Twitter down? Social network experiences connection issues

Thousands of Twitter users have reported a problem with the service. The site claims it will have "things back to normal soon".

On Tuesday morning at approximately 9:45 AM ET, Twitter.com went offline for many users, including our entire staff.

One of the biggest social networking websites of the world, Twitter is facing an outage across the globe.

Most of the reported outages in the USA appeared to be concentrated along the East Coast. "Something is technically wrong", the site's error message reads at the time of filing this story. The micro-blogging site gained instant popularity with its monthly users peaking to as high as 150 million within the next five years. Every time you try to refresh your Twitter timeline through mobile app, you will notice that the page isn't refreshing and the app keeps showing the error message. At many occasions in past too, Twitter went down for users in India, China, Japan, the United States and other parts of the world.
