What happened to Tweetdeck ?

Tweetdeck, the popular Twitter-owned desktop service for monitoring incoming tweets, went down for many users Thursday morning.

Tweetdeck would not load tweets on its website or app, as pages appeared to be stuck on a “loading” screen for many users.

The problem appears to have started around 9:20 a.m. ET, when many users began reporting problems with the service. Though the issue appeared to be widespread, it seems to have not affected all of the app’s users.

Twitter.com and other Twitter clients, including the main Twitter app, were unaffected by the problem. Even though Twitter’s other services remained accessible, the disruption of Tweetdeck — an app particularly known for its popularity among journalists and other power users — sparked an immediate freakout.
