Twitter not working: Social network says problem with tweets not showing is fixed

Tweets were not showing up on feeds or even loading for some users on Saturday, according to hundreds of people reporting problems with the social network.

Twitter reported a problem on its status page at 3am but later said the issue had been "identified".

"Between 18:49 and 19:23 PDT (2.49am and 3.23am) today, some users may have experienced issues viewing and sending Tweets on twitter.com and Twitter's mobile apps," a spokesperson said.

"The source of this issue has been identified, and we apologise for any inconvenience."

But the problems seemed to continue into Saturday morning, with hundreds of users around the world venting their frustration.

Feminist campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez wrote: "Twitter is boring when it's broken", while another annoyed user suggested people "sit in separate rooms and pass each other notes under the door" instead.

Many people reported feeds missing tweets that appeared to have been posted and profiles not showing any recent posts.

The issues were reported in countries including the UK, US, Germany, France, Poland, Spain and Turkey.

Shortly after 1.45pm, Twitter said the problem had been solved.

"The delay with tweets showing up in timelines has now been resolved," a spokesperson said. "Thank you for your patience."

Meanwhile, there were also reports of a problem with the link shortening service bit.ly.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
