And then -- went back down again and then issued another statement saying okay our engineers are working on it -- And that they would keep on getting people throughout the day and then -- end up happening was after was up and -- from the times Twitter seven it was a cascaded bug. Now what is a cascaded bug it sounds to me like it's it. A problem that they had that they tried to fix and it created other bugs have.

Is there an impact to businesses who who depend on on -- Twitter for some what they do you. I imagine that there is because I'm a big depend on and a lot to send a message that the consumers and stuff like that and also -- to.
