The micro-blogging site Twitter has resumed service but Twitter was sadly not working for quite some time.

Social media giant Twitter on Tuesday went down briefly due to a technical snag.

Twitter's Support handle had tweeted, "Some users may have recently experienced issues accessing Twitter on mobile & web".

Pacers Stun Cavs In Game 1
Now with the Pacers and Cavs meeting in the first round of the playoffs, Oladipo is being faced with those questions. That's why we came to play this game is to win, not just to come here and just be OK.

When Twitter ($NYSE:TWTR) launched in 2006, it was little more than a curious messaging platform that challenged users to make a point in 140 characters.

Twitter users hoping to share their latest thought with the world are being confronted by a "something is technically wrong" page. The app also seems to be affected by the outage as users are not able to tweet and refresh the news feed. "Thanks for noticing - we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon", the message said.

The Down Detector website reports that Twitter has been experiencing problems since 9:50 a.m. EDT. This news has been confirmed by internet tracker DownDetector, which suggests that the technical difficulty is being faced by users in the north-eastern USA, parts of United Kingdom and France, as well as Japan.
