The New York Times website was down Wednesday morning because of “technical difficulties,” the newspaper said. 

Users trying to access were greeted by an error message.

The New York Times, via its Twitter feed, did not give an explanation but urged reader to follow its @nytimesworld Twitter account to get the latest news on the Egyptian military’s violent crackdown on supporters of outsed President Mohamed Morsi.. 

New York Times reporters and editors were apparently caught off-guard and began tweeting: 


Site’s down? It’s not us, it’s you. Try refreshing. Try closing your browser. Didn’t work? Try shutting down and restarting. #techsupport— Paul Volpe (@pvolpe) August 14, 2013

The Times said it hopes to resolve the outage soon.
