Uh oh, Twitter’s having some problems right now. For the last few minutes new tweets are appearing incredibly slowly or not at all on the mobile apps, Tweetdeck, web app and other API clients.
Using third party tools like Twitterfall to check the service, lots of users are complaining that their timelines are not updating right now. Users can send tweets to the service, but they’re coming in for other’s very slowly.
Twitter’s status site was updated at 5:50 PT to say that it’s aware of the timeline delay issue and is working on a fix.
No tweets in 20 minutes on a Monday means Twitter is down, right?

Where did everyone go? Why no tweets?

Update at 6:30 PT: Twitter is slowly coming back now!
