(Ping! Zine) – Twitter’s latest failed attempt for an upgrade on Monday night left the site unusable for many.
Around 8 p.m. PDT Monday night, problems with the site bagan. Company spokeswoman Carolyn Penner said, “Our infrastructure and operations engineers are currently working to resolve this. The site could be down until approximately 3 a.m. PDT.”
The Twitter status page blamed the problem on “the failed enhancement of a new approach to timeline caching.”
Signs of problems included the infamous “failwhale” image indicating problems, another image signifying “Something is technically wrong,” missing or late tweets, duplicate tweets, and a Web page that didn’t work at times.
