Twitter users worldwide were left clueless early Monday when their timelines on the micro-blogging site suddenly went blank for a brief period, media reports said.
At around 10 a.m., Twitter reportedly went down for a few minutes when timelines — which display Twitter updates — of many users “disappeared” across the world. Some users even started using the #TwitterDown hashtag to report the technical problem.
While the firm was yet to issue a statement on this, users went on tweeting about “missing” timelines on #TwitterDown.
Ya, I’m getting the “timeline is empty” bug too. Twitter was down for a bit too…trouble with the server hamsters!
