Millions of users around the world were left without the services of Twitter for a few minutes on Tuesday evening. At the moment, when I try to load the site on my browser, I'm getting the following message: "Something is technically wrong". "Thanks for noticing- We are going to fix it up and have things back to normal".

Twitter is down for some users in the USA, Japan and a number of European countries, with a smaller number of reports from other parts of the world ...

It is not clear what happened as of now.
