Twitter's Global Crash


Those of you trying to access Twitter at the moment will be having problems, as Twitter is down globally.

The Guardian reports that Twitter has suffered a total outage.

Access to the service began failing over the web, mobile and its API (application programming interface, the system that applications use to speak to the Twitter service) at 8:20am GMT, with error messages warning the network is both “over capacity” and suffering an “internal error”.

The company initially confirmed the outage by, somehow, tweeting, from its @support account. We were unable to see the tweet, because Twitter was down.

Twitter emailed the text of the tweet to the Guardian, which read:
Some users are currently experiencing problems accessing Twitter. We are aware of the issue and are working towards a resolution.
What's the betting that this is the work of a spotty teenager?

We can assume that its share price, which has already taken a battering, will fall further because of this.
