Twitter was reportedly down in the late hours of Tuesday, with several users reporting service outages. Based on data from Downdetector. com, almost 33,000 users reported outage of Twitter around 11:38 PM IST from around the world, and a substantial number of people also experienced service outages in India as well. Twitter acknowledged the error later and fixed it quickly. The company later made a social media post regarding the same.

“Twitter may not be loading for some of you –– we're working on a fix to get you back to your timelines ASAP,” said Twitter on its official support channel at around 12 PM IST. Almost 30 minutes later, the company fixed the issue and put out the following statement, “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!”
