Twitter has reported to have a service outage that began around 2pm EDT on Tuesday as users reported issues with both the app and web versions of the platform, with many claiming that they were being logged out or were unable to load their home feed.
According to Downdetector.com, a website that tracks outages through collating status reports from a number of sources, more than 27,000 users had reported Twitter outages.
In July, Twitter experienced an outage for an hour as well and before that, in February, its service went down at least twice. Moreover, the company’s recent technical problem occurred as it was engaged in a legal battle with Elon Musk, the world’s wealthiest person, over his decision to back out of a 44 billion dollar deal to purchase the San Francisco-based company.
“Twitter may not be loading for some of you – we’re working on a fix to get back to your timelines asap,” the company said in a tweet on Wednesday.
Following the 35,0000 reports at its peak regarding the outages of Twitter, the social media company recognized a problem. Thus, after fixing the issue, ascribed it to a “internal systems update that didn’t proceed as planned.” as they posted on their platform.
“We fixed it! We made an internal systems change that didn’t go as planned and have rolled it back. Twitter should now be loading as expected. Sorry about that,” it said after 35 minutes.
