Ironic. This definitely gets in the way of being a good news source (see last post)!!

Twitter Down: It’s Not Just You Seeing the Fail Whale: “

It’s not just you: Twitter is completely down, and has been for at least 15 minutes. What exactly what took down the microblogging service, we don’t know (some speculate that a wave of tweets due to this morning’s 6.1 earthquake in Haiti could be partly responsible).

It’s late pacific time, meaning most of the Twitter team is probably asleep and a response to the situation will be delayed.

Since the attacks last August, Twitter’s been doing pretty well in terms of uptime (though it’s had its share of slowdowns).

We will update you when we learn what’s happened. In the meantime, you’ve got Facebook to update your friends on your frustrations, or our comments section below.
