Twitter client TweetDeck experienced an outage this morning, sending reporters of all stripes into a panic that they might miss an embarrassing Trump tweet or the latest teen trend finally making its way to the social network.

The Twitter-owned app was down for 60–90 minutes, but users could still access in their browsers. However, many members of the media use TweetDeck’s column view and ability to easily show multiple Twitter lists on one screen to complete day-to-day work. Many of those columns appeared blank, or only updated tweets after a long delay. Sending tweets was also disabled for some users.

TweetDeck acknowledged the problem about an hour into the problem, with a tweet, of course.

TweetDeck was back up and running by 8:30 Pacific for many users.
