    TECHNOLOGY Twitter network collapsed

    The Twitter social network confirmed Thursday that the system is "experiencing problems" that make users can not access it.

    The announcement was made up through the web Twitter Status.

    The company said its engineers are working to resolve the incident and re-enable access as soon as possible.

    From the early hours of Thursday, Twitter experienced service problems that have caused no cargase page. The Twitter web page was closed and had not returned to normal.

    The company did not specify the severity of the damage or the number of users affected by it.

    What has been said is that the microblogging service engineers are already "working to resolve the problem."

    Twitter users were unable to access the micro-blogging service for about an hour on Thursday.

    Twitter said on its status blog that its engineers were investigating the issue. About an hour later, it said the issue had been resolved. The short messaging service was working again by early afternoon. The company declined to say how widespread the outage was or what caused it.

    Outages were once a relatively common occurrence for Twitter, but that was several years ago when it was new and trying to manage growth. It was shut down at least twice in August 2009, once for several hours, when hackers hobbled the site in a "denial of service" attack.
    There was no indication Thursday that the outage was the result of malicious attacks.
