Facebook at the time stated that the issue was caused due to an internal hardware issue and hence, resulted in a global outage of its services. A few short outage sessions were recorded a few days later in India and some other parts, but none of them were as widespread as the previous one.

Similar to the feature from Facebook, Twitter now lets you remove a follower without notifying the person. Additionally, it also prevents you from straightaway blocking the person on the social media.
