Twitter suffered a partial outage that affected some users’ ability to send tweets in February.

“Tweeting is broken. We're working on fixing it,” tweeted Patrick Traughber, product manager for the social media giant.

According to, there was a huge spike to 12,000 complaints of service disruptions by 5 pm ET, mostly in the U.S. and Europe.

“Sorry for the interruption and we’ll let you know when things are back to normal,” Twitter’s support team tweeted.
