According to Twitters blog the social media website was “inaccessible for all web users” and while they report a recovery at around 10.10am the service relapsed within 30mins but hats off to the Twitter Team, they report the beginning of a full recovery at around 11.08am that’s within the first hour of outage.

Mr Rawashdeh from Twitter described the day as “turbulent” and also announced that a ‘cascading bug’ was the culprit of the eventful day at Twitter HQ and speculation of hacking, the new office or Euro 2012 have been totally swashed by the team.

Twitter’s up’s and down’s

“For the past six months, we’ve enjoyed our highest marks for site reliability and stability ever: at least 99.96% and often 99.99%” reports Mr Rawashdeh.

Twitter Overload Whale







This is a far cry from days gone by when the “Overload Twitter whale” was a regular visitor to our screens.

Well done Twitter, nice recovery !
