Normally I would Tweet something small like this rather than writing up a blog post, but its kinda hard to do when you want to talk about Twitter being down. Anyway, when Twitter goes belly-up we are usually greeted by the reassuring face of the Fail Whale.
Today… Not so much. Twitter is currently generating a… less reassuring error screen:
Twitter is currently down for <%= reason %>.
We expect to be back in <%= deadline %>. For more information, check out Twitter Status. Thanks for your patience!

Thanks! Specific enough to have been a Windows error message
