Twitter Boots Android Users For Hours
For about six hours, Twitter was down on Sunday night, mostly for mobile Android users.
“Between 4:00 and 9:25 PST today some users were unable to sign in to twitter,” wrote the company on its blog. “This issue was due to a bug in our front end code, which has been patched. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this.”
However, the statement also acknowledged that some login issues remained.
It’s unclear exactly what the problem was, but some users noted that Twitter code seemed to mistakenly give the date as December 2015.
The fact that the problem affected only Android users will be sure to aid joking conspiracy theories, not to mention fuel the Apple vs. Google fanboy debates…
