Twitter’s wiser words are here: “Our apologies for today’s outage.” The company reported on its status page acknowledging that “users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Today, between around 8:20am and 9:00am PT, users around the world not able to access the site. It’s only by about 10:25am PT, the site recovered completely back. The micro-blogging giant referring the cause of today’s outage as problem in its own data centers. The company mentioned it by saying that when one system fails, a parallel system takes over and created mess indicating that it was the coincidental failure of two such parallel systems at almost the same time. What more to expect, a wiser way to apologise.
