Twitter was down for some users a while back but it seems to be back now. Users faced issues in logging into the site. The issue reportedly was faced by users worldwide including India.
Twitter issued an official statement of the outage and said that the issue has now been fixed for users. “Let’s see if this works… You may have had trouble sending and seeing Tweets. (Yeah, us too.) We’ve now fixed this,” The company tweet from Twitter Support account.
The social media site is used by millions of users every day and with the service down it surely caused chaos among them. Users took to websites like DownDetector to complain that they couldn’t access the platform, failed to tweet or check the feed.
The issue hit users mostly in the US, Japan, India, the UK and more, the DownDetector outage map showed. 7:30 PM IST was the peak of the issue with 4,355 users reporting the service to be down, since then the number of reports lowered. Some of our colleagues also faced issues at accessing the social media site, but it works fine for them now. Users took to other social media platforms to report about the outage.
The last time Twitter faced similar issues was back on September 13. Recently, we have seen Google’s and Microsoft’s services go down and users couldn’t access the platforms for hours together.
