This morning the social media giant, Twitter, was down for almost 2 hours in the United Kingdom, some parts of Europe and even Japan. This was due to technical problems. 

Twitter was on the case though and posted a tweet saying: "Some users are currently experiencing problems accessing Twitter. We are aware of the issue and are working towards a resolution." 

Twitter was then furiously mocked for hours after for providing updates about the outage for users by sending a tweet that few people could read due to limited access. The hashtag #Twitterdown is still trending with up to 138K tweets.
