Twitter Down For Some Users

Twitter users are having some problems accessing the site. What else is new right? We're not seeing the usual fail whale, but the robot pictured above this time.

Various Twitter apps appear to be working (we tested iPhone/Android/Mac), but itself is having issues.

Not much info has been made available in term of details, but Twitter did have this to say on the Twitter Status blog:

You may experience some problems loading and with Twitter clients. We are aware of the problem and are taking action.

That was about an hour ago. It hasn't been that long since I was able to use, but apparently it's been happening that long for some. If we receive additional info, we'll update. access did resurface once for me for just a second, before fading again.

I don't think this robot is quite as charming as the Fail Whale. Anyone have t-shirts or tattoos of this guy yet?

Update: As of 4:46PM, appears to be back in business - at least for those of us around here. The status blog has not been updated, however, so I'm guessing the issue isn't completely resolved.

Update 2: Twitter posted the following to its status blog: This issue is resolved, access to all features for all users is restored.
