Twitter users continue to complain about the LinkedIn outage. Down Right Now and Down Detector show repeated service disruptions over the last 24 hours. One commenter on Down Detector said he was able to get into the social network by googling “LinkedIn technical support.” Then he clicked “go to my LinkedIn” at the top of the right page, which takes users to their home page. A couple of other commenters on the site reported that this temporary workaround worked for them as well.
We have reached out to LinkedIn for further updates and will update this post as soon as the company responds with further details.
Update 7/24/2014 8:33 AM EST: Some users over Twitter are reporting that LinkedIn is still not accessible to them. Here’s what they are saying:

Update 17:43 EST: LinkedIn’s Help on Twitter states that the problem has been fixed in most locations, here’s the tweet:
LinkedIn Corp (NYSE:LNKD) appears to be having some big problems with its website. Users of Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) are complaining that the social network is down. Down right now shows that there’s a likely widespread service disruption. The website bases that on user reports.
Is it down right now reports that it is able to ping LinkedIn and get a response, but there are a few user reports about problems on that site as well. Those who posted on the site report that the social network has been down multiple times today.
Down Detector reports that people have been having problems with LinkedIn since as early as 10:50 a.m. Eastern. At this point the cause of the problems is still unclear.
