Links on Twitter are currently broken.
When you click a link on Twitter, it takes you to a page that says “Something is technically wrong.” It may have to do with Twitter’s link shortener, t.co, which all links posted to the site are forwarded through. Photos uploaded to the service with the link pic.twitter.com are still working. We’ve reached out to Twitter and will update when we know more.
Meanwhile, enjoy the panic:

The best part of this is nobody can link to their obvious tech blog post about how links are down—

Twitter links appear to be broken. Temporary solution: copy & paste them into your browser.—
