LONDON (AP) People around the world briefly experienced problems accessing Twitter on Thursday, a day before the 2012 Olympic Games are expected to cause a spike in use of the micro-blogging site.
About three hours after the San Francisco-based company first acknowledged the problem by saying its engineers were "currently working to resolve the issue," Twitter said in a statement that the "site issue" had been resolved.
It did not go into further detail on what caused the glitch the second time in just over a month that the site has been hit by problems.
Visitors to the site on Thursday had been greeted with a half-formed message saying that "Twitter is currently down." The fields where a reason for the outage and a deadline for restoring service were apparently meant to go were filled with computer code.
Sluggishness or outages were reported for more than an hour in countries in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Some users were able to post updates through their phones or third-party applications. Tweets about the Olympic torch, which is wending its way through central London, still poured in, albeit far more slowly than earlier in the day.

Did it hurt? Did your hands and feet go numb from pounding on the keyboards and the floor? Was your vision affected? Most importantly.. Have you donated to FR yet 8-?
I tweeted all my friends this AM that I was going into the bathroom. Not getting any acknowledgement I held it in.
Been out of sorts all day.
It’ll be a cold day in he!! I use Twitter or Facebook.
Looks like a bad case of “chirpees”.
It’s a common canarial disease; unfortunately, there is no tweetment.
MarineBrat stepped on an ant today. It had more impact than twits not twitting.
To answer your last question ===> Yes i did.
It’s working for me.
Twitter was down?
Good God! How will that psycho moonbat Roseanne tweet her crazy-ass threats if twitter was down? Must of been a real hardship for her.
And the rest of the world was deprived of her little pearls of wisdom (major league “sarc”).
