“Cascading Bug” took Twitter Down

As we have already reported that yesterday Twitter was down for one hour and no explanation came from Twitter but explanation was expected and it came. Twitter was not down because of Hacker’s because they love Twitter nor because of their new office or Euro 2012.

What took Twitter down?

A cascading bug took Twitter down for almost an hour. Twitter defines Cascading bug as

“cascading bug” is a bug with an effect that isn’t confined to a particular software element, but rather its effect “cascades” into other elements as well. One of the characteristics of such a bug is that it can have a significant impact on all users, worldwide, which was the case today”.

The time Twitter found about this bug they rolled back to a previous stable version of Twitter. In last six month the reliability of Twitter has been  very high from 99.6% to 99.9% except the performance of Twitter yesterday.

Twitter choose the above Tweet by Arghya Roy Chowdhury to define the importance the Twitter and offered their apologies also to Twitter user’s.

It’s imperative that we remain available around the world, and today we stumbled. For that we offer our most sincere apologies and hope you’ll be able to breathe easier now.

We also hope that you must be Tweeting your Tweet’s.
