Twitter’s Engineers Currently Fixing Widespread Sign-In Issue [Update: Fixed]

Update: Twitter says the issue has been fixed.

If you have had trouble using Twitter or third-party apps over the past couple of hours, fear not—the microblogging service is on it.

The company confirmed on its Status blog that its engineers are working to fix an issue that has affected the ability of somer users to sign into the service online and through its mobile site, as well as apps like Twitter for Android, Echofon, and Twitterific. The sign-in issue also caused tweets posted using Tweetdeck to be backdated by 365 days.

Not all Twitter apps have been affected, however. Twitter’s iOS app still works for me, as does Tweetbot for iPad, and plenty of Twitter users can still tweet out their lighthearted speculations about the cause of the outage.
