Twitter is back online for many after a brief crash
Twitter users across the world are facing troubles with the micro-blogging platform. Many users reported problems with the site early Friday. Twitter suffered a brief outage for some Indian users on Friday morning and came back to life soon, as the new CEO Elon Musk prepared to sack several employees starting Friday.
Twitter on mobile was working fine but users on the desktop version had some trouble logging into the platform.
The Twitter website also went down for some users, with a message saying “Something went wrong, but don’t fret – let’s give it another shot“.
According to downdetector.com, a website that monitors online outages, 94 percent of users had issues with Twitter on Web, while just 6 percent faced issues with the mobile platform.
In July, the micro-blogging platform suffered a mega outage as several users across the world had error messages like “this page is down”. Several users also faced “over capacity” error messages across Twitter web, mobile, and the TweetDeck app.
In March, Twitter users experienced difficulties accessing the platform on desktops as an outage was reported in Japan, India, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
Twitter faced two mega outages in February as users were not able to post tweets for several minutes.
According to Downdetector – the outage tracking site has also flagged issues with the platform. The outage reportedly started around 3 am and saw a relatively big spike around 7 am. Users around the world are hit.
Last week, Musk took control of Twitter and fired its top executives including CEO Parag Agrawal in one of these first big actions.
