Twitter had some issues for some on Tuesday. I personally didn’t experience any problems, but a colleague says that things loaded very slowly, specifically when it comes to new tweets and replies. They were also logged out on the web and weren’t able to sign back in.
In a tweet from its support account, Twitter said it had “made an internal systems change that didn’t go as planned and have rolled it back.”
During the outage there were more than 30,000 user reports of problems on Downdetector. A heatmap shows that reports came in from all over the country, and there was apparently a big outage in Atlanta.
Update August 9th, 3:12PM ET: Added new tweet from Twitter’s support account confirming things were fixed.
