Worldwide twitter outage ends

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Many users woke up and couldn't check their Twitter feeds. Just around 4 a.m. Twitter experienced a worldwide outage Tuesday that lasted for about two hours.

The following message popped up when users tried accessing the social network:

Something is technically wrong.

Thanks for noticing—we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon.

Twitter's mobile app was partially functioning for some users but its timeline updated new tweets sporadically. Its search function appeared disabled as some hashtags or keyword searches returned no results. Users' profile pages appeared to be accessible from the mobile app.

Third party services, such as the TweetDeck service, also returned a blank page.
