Trouble with Twitter: Stream timeline frozen

Microblogging site reports that 'many' users are suffering through delayed tweets

Twitter is suffering a status update freeze this afternoon.

Twitter confirmed the problem early this afternoon, noting that users can post tweets to be published on their own stream but updates from Twitterers that they follow aren't showing up.

Users have reported that the last tweet going up in their stream was between 10 and 11 a.m. EDT today.

The microblogging site said that the problem affects "many" users and that engineers there are working on it. "We are currently investigating a problem causing many users' timelines to be delayed," the company noted.

There was no indication when Twitter expects the problem to be fixed.

At least one West Coast user reported at 1:50 p.m. (EDT) this afternoon that his feed was moving along without interruption.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
