Twitter hit by giant go-slow days after last mega-wobble


Twitter suffered a second major disruption to its micro-blogging site in the early hours of this morning after the service went titsup on 28 December.

Users moaned that tweets were delayed after being posted on Twitter. Other users reported that their timelines were very slow to update with new tweets.

The latest technical cockup to hamper the network, where 500 million tweets are apparently sent each day, comes a little over a week since Twitter was hammered by a bug in its front end code.

In that instance, people were forced to gripe about the five-hour-long service outage on Reddit.

Twitter posted a brief statement acknowledging its latest wobble without revealing what caused the problem. It said:

Between 16:51 and 18:30 PST today, users experienced a delay in tweets appearing in their timelines. This issue has been fully resolved. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this.
