Twitter Blames Outage on Glitch During ‘Routine Change’Twitter Censored

Twitter on Monday experienced some brief downtime, which the micro-blogging company blamed on a mix-up with a routine change.

Twitter was down for some users between 1:08 p.m. Pacific and 1:33 p.m. Pacific, which the company said was “due to an error in a routine change.” Those who encountered the problems saw a message on (below) that said: “Something is technically wrong” next to an image of broken robot.

Twitter did not elaborate on what the routine change entailed. “We rolled back the erroneous change as soon as we identified the issue,” the company said. “Additionally, some users may have experienced Tweet delivery delay” for about 20 minutes after service was restored. “We apologize for the inconvenience.”

The problem has since been resolved, according to Twitter.

Here at PCMag, a few people experienced the error message, while others were not impacted.

Back in January, Twitter experienced a downtime that lasted nearly three hours, its third outage that month. Users found themselves faced with the fail whale on Jan. 31 from about 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Eastern; the same thing happened on Jan. 21 and 16.

Before that, the site’s last major outage occurred in July.

The outage came the same day that Twitter expanded its Vine app to the Android platform. Recently, it also simplified profile updating and updated its mobile apps, as well as turned on two-factor authentication.
