Twitter goes down, company at work on solution

Twitter is currently down.

The social network announced the outage on its Status page this morning, saying that "users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter." The company didn't say what the issue might be, but did say that its "engineers are currently working to resolve the issue."

Years ago, as Twitter's growth skyrocketed, the service suffered from frequent outages. Over the last couple of years, however, most of those outages have subsided, save for a few brief outages from time to time. It's not clear how long this outage might last.
