Twitter home not updating, falling hours behind

UPDATE: As of 2:30 Central Time, Twitter appears to be back to normal.

Twitter users are complaining this morning about an apparent glitch on their Twitter home pages.

While users can still send tweets, receive @ replies, relay direct messages, and use Twitter’s search function, their home page after logging in is not displaying new tweets. Instead, it now lags two hours behind (and counting).

Twitter’s official status blog wrote moments ago that it is “investigating a problem causing many users’ timelines to be delayed.” But it has yet to post any further updates to this point.

Tweets are flying in about the problem:

  1. Robert Vinet
    RobertVinet Why is twitter only showing tweets older than 2 hrs on my home page while searches reveal newer posts. Same on Web & TweetDeck.
  2. Marilyn
    M2M My twitter home is not refreshing anymore? It says no one posted in 2 hours. First that’s impossible and second, I know it’s not true!
  3. Julz Lugo

    Stas_iu OK. What’s going on? Neither my Twitter home page nor Tweetdeck are updating, but I can view my followers individually and see their tweets.

Not to worry, Megan, we're all affected. And still, I see.
