Twitter fail whale

Yeah, Twitter's been borked for many of you for a good bit of the day -- or longer. We've heard you, especially those of you using HTC's Peep or Friendstream clients (found in HTC Sense). We just kept holding out hope that it would be one of those hour-long outages. Then it became a three-hour-long outage. Then we went and got dinner. A couple glasses of wine. A little dessert. Still no Twitter. So here's what's up, in slightly more than 140 characters:

According to Twitter's status page, some mobile clients are unable to log in they include:

  • HTC Peep
  • Moto BLUR
  • Nokia Twitter apps
  • Samsung devices (except for phones running Android OS)
  • Huawei phones

For its part, HTC has said "We know that Peep/Friend Stream are not working for some, and we apologize. Please bear with us while our developers are investigating."

As to when things will be fixed? Couldn't tell you. In the meantime, feel free to suggest your favorite (working) Twitter client in the comments. We know how you love to do that. [Twitter]

Update: Twitter says everything's better now.
