    Update 2: As of roughly 2:15AM ET, Twitter resumed service worldwide.

    Update: As of 1:24AM ET, Twitter seems to be returning to normal – but some status detection sites are still reporting service interruptions.

    It’s not just you: Twitter appears to be down at the moment. Some users reported it roughly 20 minutes ago, at around 12:50AM ET.

    Update 3:01 PM ET: The outage was due to a ‘networking routing misconfiguration during internal testing,’ Twitter tells Reuters.
