You would think that Twitter by now would be able to provide the highest level of uptime. But at times I just don’t think this company can handle the scale of growth. I’m not seeing any breaking news that should be overwhelming the Twitter service right now. So I have to assume the company just didn’t prepare for the holidays properly. I’m not sure how long this situation has been going on. At 12:00PM Central Time I’m unable to get the service to properly load. 12:23PM finally loaded properly.
Even though Twitter website finally fully loaded – It’s still not working properly. Here is the message at the bottom of the page.
Loading Tweets seems to be taking a while. Twitter may be over capacity or experiencing a momentary hiccup. Try again or visit Twitter Status for more information.
At 2:30PM Central Time Twitter is working like it normally does.
