Twitter hits puberty again, can't stay up, often goes down [Update]

Twitter is experiencing some downtime again this morning and the famous "fail whale" has returned as the services has experienced frequent outages.

The Twitter status page has yet to be updated to show there is a problem, at least as of this writing, but we will keep our eye on the issue and update this post when we hear more from the service.

Twitter had outage problems last week that took the service down for a few hours. The company did not reveal what caused the issues in that situation.

Update: Twitter's status page has now admitted they have some problems today, saying "Some users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue."

Update 2: Twitter seems to be back up again, at least for us. These problems seem to be happening more often for the service and hopefully they will actually give out some explanation for what's causing them this time.
