WORLD temporarily FREED from BURDEN of TWITTER!

Productivity surges ahead as some work finally gets done

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

Twitter is broken for an unknown number of its 500-million-strong userbase.

The site's over-capacity Fail Whale is greeting many people who are trying to access the site, while others are finding the service to be extremely slow.

A spokeswoman at the privately-held company confirmed to The Register (by email) that there was indeed an issue with the 140-characters-or-less Tweet machine at time of writing.

Twitter has (we're told) tried to issue a tweet to its users, saying:

We're hearing reports that some users are having intermittent connection problems on http://twitter.com. We're working on it.

With this outage, the economy might get back on its feet, the sun could come out and thirsty workers will be rewarded with free desk beer. Probably. ®
