Twitter crashed yet again yesterday evening as the firm tampered with its timeline caching, leaving millions of users unable to fill each other's lives with meaningless information.
"We're currently experiencing site availability issues resulting from the failed enhancement of a new approach to timeline caching," noted a post on the Twitter Status site yesterday.
"Our infrastructure and operations engineers are currently working to resolve this."
Updates an hour or two later indicated that the service was back up but that users were temporarily experiencing missing tweets.
Finally, by around 8am this morning, Twitter said it was "recovering from the site outage".
"Remember, users may temporarily experience missing or duplicate tweets from their timelines," it added.
Given the timing of the outage, presumably the only affected UK users would have been those tweeting from the pub and/or their bedrooms in the early hours of the morning. Which is no great loss really, is it?
