This is The Internet Report, where we uncover what’s working and what’s breaking on the Internet—and why. In this week’s episode, we discuss two notable outages that happened last week. The first, at Twitter, took place on October 15 around 5:30 pm PST and impacted users’ ability to tweet or re-tweet. According to Twitter’s official statement, an internal system error was the culprit—putting to bed any theories of another hack. The second outage took place at the transit provider, Zayo, in the early morning hours of October 13. Although the outage seemed to mostly involve interfaces on the US west coast, Denver and the southwest (as well as a handful of other global locations), the impact of the outage was not very severe due to the time of the outage, which was outside of US business hours. Watch this week’s episode to hear more about these two outages.
