Twitter’s website was down Thursday afternoon, with users who tried to visit the service greeted by an error message. A note on the company’s status website showed that Twitter was investigating an irregularity with its application Programming Interface, or API.
“We are currently investigating this issue,” the status website read. “More updates to come.” The company’s mobile app also appeared to not be functioning properly.
The outage comes one day after Twitter and rival Facebook made the unprecedented editorial decision to limit the reach of a New York Post story that claims to show “smoking gun” emails related to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son.
Rather suspicious timing, eh?
