Twitter on the blink again, no word on cause

Following two outages, the microblogging site appears to be undergoing another technical hiccup--feeds have stopped updating.

After two Twitter outages this week, the service is encountering another issue Wednesday afternoon as many users are reporting they can get to the microblogging site, but their feeds are not being updated.

Although users could add updates to the site, their tweets were not apparent to others on the site, according to several users contacted by CNET News, as well as our experience here in the newsroom.

The problems seem to have begun around 4 p.m. PDT. There is nothing to indicate that the site has suffered anything similar to the denial-of-service attack that knocked the site offline for an extended period last week.

Twitter didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
