BOSTON (CBS) – On Thursday, the ever popular social network, Twitter, went down for about an hour.

The disruption in service occurred just after 11 a.m.

The website displayed a status to all users, saying:

“Users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue.”

Twitter apologized for the downtime.

“We are sorry. Many of you came to Twitter earlier today expecting, well, Twitter. Instead, between around 8:20am and 9:00am PT, users around the world got zilch from us. By about 10:25am PT, people who came to Twitter finally got what they expected: Twitter,” the social media site said.

This is the third incident where Twitter’s users were having difficulty with the site in a little over a month.

On June 19 and 21, Twitter reported similar issues as well as problems with e-mail delivery.

With the 2012 Olympics set to begin Friday, Twitter is expected to have a significant bump in traffic.
