Twitter is down… Again!

Filed under: Computer Related,Humor — Suramya @ 11:07 PM

Twitter downtimes are becoming more and more common, and even though I don’t spend that much time on Twitter anymore (Mastodon is so much better and more fun) this was too good to ignore.
If you visit (or any url on twitter) right now instead of the content you get an API error message stating that “Your current API plan does not include access to this endpoint, please see for more information”.

Current API plan does not include access to this endpoint

Looks like the team managed to nuke their own connections to the API while attempting to restricting some API calls to paid customers only. Although this is an error that should have been caught in UAT or QA testing. I mean that is the basic 1st thing to check to see if all services are working after a major change like this one. But it looks like it was pushed to prod directly without validation.

I guess firing a majority of your teams with almost no notice or Knowledge Transfer sessions is a bad move and makes it harder to keep your site up and running. Who knew?
