Many users have experienced problems due to the face that the Twitter team started to prepare the systems to handle the additional traffic caused by the Football World Cup. However, the implemented changes made it obvious that Twitter had deeper problems.

The Twitter team stated these changes will not affect users wanting to keep up-to-date about the World Cup, and before disabling the site for maintenance, this is going to be announced in before to avoid users getting irritated.
Despite these problems, Twitter is finally doing the necessary changes for running a more stable service. This helps to cope with the big traffic increase that happened recently.
