Twitter issues an apology for its server outage!

Social networking giant Twitter has apologized for the consecutive outages caused on Sunday and Monday this week. The company has issued an official apology and said that the issue was fixed.

On Sunday afternoon, Twitter servers went down for almost 3 minutes in between 13:24Pm and 13:27Pm PST. Then on Monday morning, again a 10 minute outage was witnessed between 6:23am and 6:33am PST due to a software glitch. 

In the said time frame, while accessing the service the users got the following message.

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

On Monday evening, Twitter issued an apology and confirmed that the issue has been resolved.

According to a news source, Twitter’s disaster recovery team was quick enough to failover the service to other location, as soon as the servers in the main server farm witnessed a technical snag.

Factually speaking, Twitter service has been experiencing several disruptions over the past few months, with the most recent outage being reported on January 15.

Hope, the company is keeping a track of its frequent disruptions.
