After the fall worldwide this morning, which occurred between 15:20 and 16:00 GMT and is fully regularized at 17:00 GMT, vice president of engineering Twitter Mazen Rawashdeh apologized for the of service in the official blog of the social network.

“Sorry (…) The cause of the fall of the service today was for our data centers. These are designed redundantly, so that if one fails, another parallel data center takes place. What happened today is that two parallel systems failed coincidentally about the same time, “said Rawashdeh.

This Twitter engineers ruled that the drop could be due to a bug in cascade as it did a month ago, as also was due to the imminent opening of the Olympics, which is estimated to increase substantially in the most traffic popular microblogging service.
