If you use the Social networking and microblogging service, Twitter – you may well have noticed some problems today; for the past 4 hours users have been tweeting about –1. No Tweets in timeline 2. Can’t see own Tweets 3. Can’t see anyones Tweets 4. Only can see @mentions
Some people have now had there service restored but still some people are making the same complaints. At first it seemed that the problem was only from applications but its the same on Twitter.com itself.
@support tweeted 3 hours ago that they know about the issues are are working hard to fix it.
About the same time the Twitter status page said something similar…
Not a great week all in all – yesterday we had the problems with the new notifications.
And on Monday there were elevated, or even evated error rates reported on the Twitter status page.We are currently experiencing elevated error rates. There may be intermittent issues loading twitter.com and Twitter clients. We are aware of the problem and taking action. Thanks for your patience! Note: Some users may experience a delay in Tweet delivery. UPDATE Tue May 24 02:08 UTC 2011: We’re now recovering and expect a full recovery on the order of a few hours. UPDATE Tue May 24 02:45 UTC 2011: Twitter is fully recovered.
No more updates from Twitter support since then, will give any updates as they arrive if possible.

Update from Twitter status – Update (Thursday May 26 05:15 UTC): The issue has been resolved
However it clearly isn’t resolved as there are still many tweets complaining about no tweets in timeline, no homepage etc.

@leejonathan well I can’t because she can see my tweets. me and her are finished I suppose.
So obviously some people are still affected by absent tweets.
Hope this helps; Sometimes, its just reassuring to know that you are not alone.
