Twitter appears to be gradually coming back online after an outage this morning that lasted at least a half-hour for many users. Maybe this is their way of reminding us how central the service has become to the way many of us communicate online.

“That. Was. Agony. #TwitterColdTurkey‬,” tweeted TV personality Piers Morgan, reflecting the sentiment of many.

Did anyone out there retreat to Facebook or take another look at Google+?

Ironically, of course, the service wasn’t able to keep users updated on Twitter itself, but the company did post an update on its status page: “Users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue.”

No word yet on the cause of the outage.

    Shame on Twitter for not functioning this morning. I consider this company to be critically important to many businesses and, as such, I will not allow it to be down.
