Twitter experienced an outage this afternoon just as the White House gathered right-wing personalities for a summit focused on allegations of social media bias against conservatives.
"We are currently investigating issues people are having accessing Twitter, and we’ll keep you updated on what’s happening," a company spokesperson told POLITICO.
Before the outage, attendees had been tweeting selfies and observations as they waited for the White House program to start.
