Although thousands of reports came in, the issue was limited to iPhone's mobile app while the website and the Android version of the app seemed to be working fine. 70% of users reported issues with the app, while 25% users reported issues with the website. Twitter users were not able to access the ‘For You' section of the Twitter app initially and the whole platform went down, as a ‘Tweets are not loading right now' error came across the screen.
