'Miss us?' Twitter hit with hour-long outage

Twitter down: Users unable to logon

Social media giant Twitter suffered an hour-long worldwide outage this morning, with users unable to access the platform on both the website and mobile. Most queries on the social media platform were resulting in an error page for users all over the world.

Thursday afternoon, a cryptic error message greeted Twitter users.

The interruption was due to an internal system change, the company said, adding that it was working to fully fix the problem.

According to DownDetector, Reddit first started having issues at 3:00 AM EST, but have continued to get worse as the day has gone on, with thousands of complaints from users pouring in as they struggle to access the site.

Once Twitter service was restored, the downtime was an immediate subject of tweets.

Twitter has not posted updates on their Facebook or Instagram accounts at this point.


Twitter, however, did not provide any details on the outage. The U.K. and Japan are also experiencing heavy outages, while other locations worldwide are being affected to a lesser extent.

"We were down. and now slowly coming back up".

Update 3:48pm ET: Twitter is back up after about a 45-minute outage.

"We are now investigating issues people are having accessing Twitter and we'll keep you updated on what's happening via our status page", Lindsay McCallum, a Twitter spokesperson, told Digital Trends.
