Twitter down again; global outage reported
- Twitter down is trending. This is the second major service breakdown in the recent past
Twitter down is trending as users across the globe take to social media to complain about the service outage. This time too, the service is down across the globe. Not just Twitter app, users have indicated that there are issues even with the Twitter website. The message Twitter users are getting says, “Something went wrong. Try reloading.” However, that has not worked for most people and the microblogging site and app remain down. As many as 85% of the complaints were about the website not working, 9% said they were facing a 'Server Connection' issue and 6% said they were facing problems on the Twitter App.
Downdetector, which tracks outages by collating status reports from a number of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform, is showing a rising graph of complaints regarding Twitter outage. However, Twitter India looks to be working for most users.
There is no reaction available yet from Twitter as yet- not on @Twitter or even on @TwitterSupport.
