So what happened? Twitter hasn't given a reason for the hours-long outage this morning, but it acknowledged the issue on its Status page around noon, EST. Reports from users suggest the service is working fine for most, if not all users, now.
Although the outage didn't cause much trouble, users have been quick to point out that Twitter went down several days, ago, too (June 21st, to be exact).That particular outage appears to have been worse, as many users were quickly back up and running today. Twitter has invested heavily in new infrastructure to avoid just these sorts of outages.
