Twitter was hit by a temporary outage on Monday morning as millions of Twitter Android users reported facing a sign in problem.
Users who tried signing up for the micro blogging service were faced with a welcome page saying “Something is technically wrong.”
“Thanks for noticing-we’re going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon.”
Users were unable to log back in- not only from the mobile site but from web browsers as well. Only Apple iOS devices were working fine for logging into Twitter. The sign-in issue also caused tweets posted using Tweetdeck to be backdated by 365 days.
Acknowledging the issue, the social blogging giant said that the problems stemmed from a bug in the social network’s front end code and that the service is back to normal now.
“Between 4:00 and 9:25 PST today some users were unable to sign in to twitter. This issue was due to a bug in our front end code, which has been patched. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this,” a statement from Twitter read.
Twitter currently has over 284 million monthly active users.
