Twitter Goes Down On Inauguration Day 2013

Just as thousands took to Twitter to comment on the presidential motorcade as it made its way through Washington, D.C. after the second inauguration for Barack Obama, bam: Twitter's website appears to have stopped working. became inaccessible from two browsers, Google Chrome and Firefox, for HuffPost staffers starting around 4 p.m. ET. However, Twitter's iOS apps for iPhones and iPads seem to be working fine -- if you really need to scratch that Twitter itch.

The website downrightnow also reported the outage, writing that it is having "Likely Service Disruption." A similar site, "Down For Everyone Or Just Me," also noted that "It's not just you! looks down from here."

We've reached out to Twitter and will update with comment when we receive it.
