Your "Throwback Thursday" or #tbt photos are going to have to wait on Twitter.
As of around 10 a.m. EST, the social media site was experiencing downtime and server issues. The site and updates have been inaccessible from browsers Google Chrome and Firefox as well as iOS apps such as Tweetbot for iPad or iPhone.
The website downrightnow, which tracks outages at Twitter and other sites, noted that there are "Likely Service Disruption." The website "Down For Everyone Or Just Me?" added: "It's not just you! Twitter.com looks down from here." Another third party site, "Is It Down Right Now" noted a non-responsive server, confirming "Twitter.com is DOWN for everyone."
Twitter's last downtime period took place 10 days ago during a high volume tweeting event: President Obama's second inauguration. Twitter went on to address the connectivity issue seven hours later.
Twitter has not issued a statement for this downtime yet. We will update if they do so.
UPDATE 1: At around 10:20 a.m. ET, Twitter acknowledged that service is sporadic. "Some users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter," a company blog wrote. "Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue."
UPDATE 2: It appears Twitter is back and up and running normally. At 1:48 p.m. ET, Twitter's support account (@support) tweeted: "And we're back! Pardon the interruption."

Pictures Of Your Debit Cards
Stop with these photos! Seeing your account number and name is too much information to willingly give away. To curb this recent trend, <a href="https://twitter.com/NeedADebitCard" target="_hplink">@NeedADebitCard </a>has started calling people out on Twitter who pose with their plastic.
Too Many Hashtags
#One or #two #hashtags is #enough, #people. Also is #FF an outdated fad yet? #Itshouldbe #Imsoironic. Oh and #PS Don't you love #ridiculouslylonghashtags?
Requests For Retweets
There is a certain desperateness if all of your tweets scream "Plz RT!" or "RT if you love this!" We probably won't do as we're told.
Your Own Twitter Handle
That's like talking about yourself in third person. (And you probably shouldn't do that either.)
Ah, the humblebrag: "People keep telling me I look great today, but I'm so fat!" "This picture of me is horrible, but thanks for all the compliments!" The only boasts we like are those aggregated by <a href="https://twitter.com/Humblebrag/" target="_hplink">@humblebrag</a> -- and that's because all of your subtle swagger is being mocked.
We know you go out with your friends on Friday night. And that's totally fine -- but maybe when you puke in the back of a taxi at 4am, you should keep those tweets to yourself? Or maybe not... We kind of like reminding you to delete them the next day.
Your Klout Score
So you're influential about the topic of "coffee?" Wow. Your klout might <em>actually</em> be worth a #humblebrag.
Rapid-Fire Instagram Pics All Day
We love Instagram. But, alas, there can be too much of a good thing. It's bothersome when you tweet 17 pictures of your dog or your baby a day. And might that also <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/26/instagram-tips_n_1557614.html" target="_hplink">annoy your Instagram followers?</a> For a fun little Insta-mocking Twitter account, check out <a href="https://twitter.com/textigram" target="_hplink">@textigram</a>, which tweets what your photos would be if they were described via text. "Latte with heart shape in foam" and "Wing of airplane, hashtagged #flying" are some recognizable examples.
'Good Morning' Tweets
Imagine if we all tweeted "good morning" or "good night" with no updates, anecdotes, or witticisms. The Twittersphere would be a pretty boring place. Don't put us back to sleep in the a.m.; resist the early morning greeting to no one in particular.
Food Pics At Every Meal
Especially if they are photos of the fast food variety. We can only see but so many Dorito tacos and Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers.
Every Place You Check Into On Foursquare
We don't want to see an automated message about your trip to Dunkin' Donuts every morning.
Tweets About You Working Hard
It makes us feel lazy, especially on a Tuesday night when we're out at dinner.
Passive Agressive Tweets
These tweets are awkward, angsty, and remind us of MySpace circa 2004. Just take a punch, why don't ya?
There's a reason why some of us don't follow Kim Kardashian or Katy Perry on Twitter. Kindly keep the latest gossip on your own newsfeed.
Tweets About How Many Followers You Have
You win some; you lose some. Either way, we don't really care about your follower count just like you probably don't care about ours.
