In all fairness though, we haven’t seen this happen in a long time. About two years ago, this was a common place habit of our favourite social media website, and was often spotted many times a week. Whether there is an update coming, or they really have too much on their plate, we do not know. The Twitter Status website (http://status.twitter.com) doesn’t have much to say as of now.
Update 31/01/13 15.35:
Twitter have noticed the issue and are reporting it on their status website:
The no tweets underneath proves that it isn’t working for anybody, otherwise somebody would have tweeted about it already!
It is also interesting that a service like Twitter uses Tumblr to report it’s status!
As we know, it would probably be back soon!
Update 31/01/13 15.45:
And we are back, though there are still a few hiccups…
Update 31/01/13 15.55:
The website seems to be back to normal now, though the API doesn’t seem to work. In layman terms, if you use anything but the Twitter website, you may have some issues, still.
Update 31/01/13 16.15:
The whale is back! We guess this might be one of those issues that may take a little while to resolve.

It's all good now!
