UPDATE: As of 3:45 EST, things seem to be back to normal.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE: You might have noticed that Twitter is acting a little strange lately, and Twitter has just acknowledged the problem on their official Twitter Status blog:
Some users may be experiencing issue in viewing search results and home timelines . Our engineers are currently looking into this issue.
Our office is having issues with both search and home timelines. Any search simply loads the Twitter background by no results. If you try to access any user’s timeline, their unique background will load but the timeline is nowhere to be found.
Hopefully, things will get worked out sooner rather than later – we’ve all got Twittering to do.
[Note: It doesn’t seem to be affecting actual tweeting functionality, and our tweet stream of all those we follow seems to be working fine]
