It’s Christmas and I guess many of the folks who work at Twitter might have had the day off. Alas it was a bad time for Twitter to go down. Yes Twitter’s Christmas gift to all the Twitter users and their staff itself is the infamous Fail Whale.
The status blog was recently updated and said:
We’re currently experiencing some site availability issues; we’re looking into it now and will update when we have more information.
I guess we’ll have to take our Christmas Wishes to Facebook then.
Update: Some part of Twitter seems to be coming up. I can see the scripts that run on third-party sites pulling in Tweets.
Update 2: Twitter is back up now.
