When I try and log into Twitter from my laptop it says this:

Server error

The server for https://twitter.com/ took too long to respond.

It may be overloaded.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Reload this webpage later.

HTTP Error 504 (Gateway Timeout): The gateway or proxy server timed out while waiting for a response from an upstream server.

It's only my account as my friends accounts are able to log in on my laptop, I use Google Chrome but it won't work on IE either, help?

It seems to be a problem with the browser or maybe your Firewall settings' doing it. Try turning off the Firewall protection and then restart your browser and try to login. –  Deepak Kamat Apr 7 '13 at 15:44
Does this problem still exist? This might just be some temporary error on Twitter's site. –  Hydra Apr 16 '13 at 13:18
