Twitter TWTR, +1.17% has been suffering a worldwide outage Tuesday, with access in Europe looking to be the hardest hit. The downtime began at around 8:20 a.m. London time, with no or only sporadic access available via the Twitter website, mobile apps or third-party software such as TweetDeck. Instead, visitors saw an error page on the Twitter site saying, “Something is technically wrong.” A Twitter outage map on the Downdetector.uk site showed the problems were focused in the U.K. and Europe, though Japan and U.S. East Coast were also having problems. “Some users are currently experiencing problems accessing Twitter. We are aware of the issue and are working towards a resolution,” the company said in a post to its status Tumblr. Twitter told MarketWatch it had no information to share when contacted except for that message. UPDATE: The issue appears to be improving, with some Twitter users reporting the return of access and the Twitter status page for software developers reporting that only its search is now suffering “service disruption” and its “performance issues” on timelines at around 11 a.m., coming back from disruption on four of its services at around 9:20 a.m.
