Twitter Shows Major Struggles
For hours, on Monday, Twitter has had some serious issues going on.
Service has been slow at best, and at times the site was not even findable, for browsers.
Even the dreaded and often mocked "fail whale" was not even showing up for users.
Some users never reported problems, but the outage wasn't limited to any one geographical area.
Nor was it limited to online Twitter.
Mobile Twitter, computer based Tweetdeck, mobile Tweetdeck, and other mobile apps have been completely unresponsive as well.
For millions around the world, one of their key ways of communication was cut off for hours.
Twitter never commented about the issues, but did get it all fixed, after about eight hours.
