Twitter said on Thursday that it is experiencing technical issues and is working to get the site back up soon.

The outage was first noticed at around 11:15 a.m. ET and experienced issues for well over an hour. The platform slowly came back across the U.S with limited functionality.

The company also posted a note on its blog informing members of the issue: “Users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter,” it said on the site. “Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue.”

It is not only experiencing an interruption with Twitter.com but also with some mobile clients. The outage appears to have taken out the t.co url shortener.

In the meantime, the site is telling its users: “Thanks for your patience!”

The news comes just weeks after Twitter experienced its biggest outage in eight months. It was also down for about an hour.
