For 45 minutes, ‘something was technically wrong’ with Twitter


Social networking platform Twitter experienced intermittent spells of downtime on Tuesday, with users unable to log in for some 45 minutes.

Attempts to access the networking service only led to a page with a waiting notification: “Something is technically wrong.”

The error message further thanked the internet user for “noticing”, with a promise to “fix it up and have things back to normal soon”.
