Twitter Is Down, Downdetector Confirms Outage

Yep, Twitter just went down, leaving social media addicts with no way to broadcast their stream-of-consciousness hot takes to the Internet.

Unless they want to log back into Facebook – as though anyone who still uses Facebook was actually worthy of their hot takes.

Visitors mashing the refresh button are greeted with nothing but this unwelcome message:

“Something is technically wrong. Thanks for noticing – we’re going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon.

According to Downdetector, the problems began at approximately 2:46 pm ET, when the site recorded a major spike in user outages.
