(NEW YORK) -- For the second time this month, Twitter has gone down. Many are experiencing issues accessing Twitter.com and Twitter's third-party mobile applications. Twitter's new video sharing service, Vine, is also experiencing issues.
"Some users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue," Twitter posted on its status blog at 10:25 a.m. ET on Thursday morning.
Just 10 days prior, on Inauguration day, Twitter had the same issue. Many were unable to send 140-character messages or get to the site. The company posted the same statement on its blog on Jan. 21.
Twitter used to be infamous for such periodic outages and the appearance of the "fail whale" error page, which many are seeing Thursday. It has substantially improved its server capacity in the past two years. However, in July there were similar widespread outages.
