As of 17:55 Twitter accounts around South Africa (maybe the world) have stopped working. No Twitter clients are able to access the framework and not even the Twitter website is online.
There has been no update on http://status.twitter.com/ which usually provides up to the minute reports on when Twitter fails. UPDATE: This is the update posted on status.twitter.com “Users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue.”
When we receive more information we will post it here, in the mean time follow us on Twitter..oh wait…
