Today’s top IT news

The BBC reports that social networking platform Twitter has blamed a cascading bug for the site being inaccessible yesterday. Users from across the globe reported difficulties which started at around 5pm in the UK. Twitter has dismissed reports that it was hacked, confirming that it was a software bug that spread to several elements of the site. Twitter said that they took action as soon as it realised there was an issue and described the situation as just turbulence. The site used to have a reputation for poor reliability, but this has steadily improved over the years. The social network’s last major downtime in Britain was on New Year’s Day when the site crashed after becoming overloaded.

The Amazon Android Appstore will launch in the UK and other European countries this summer writes The Telegraph. A spokesman for Amazon has said that the firm is very excited to be operating within the UK and Europe and it is looking forward to working with new developers. The new Appstore is a direct competitor to the Google Play Store however, which comes pre-installed on the majority of Android handsets. This could make the European app market a challenging environment for Amazon to operate in. Some within the industry believe that Amazon may be bringing the Appstore to Europe in preparation for a release of its Kindle Fire tablet.
