Twitter down as social media giant experiences global outage

Per: NYP – Twitter appeared to be experiencing a global outage on Thursday morning, with users encountering error messages and unable to log in to the social media app.

DownDetector, a site that tracks web outage reports, noted a spike among Twitter users around 8 a.m. ET. The site noted that Twitter’s app, website and server connection appeared to be affected by the problem.

“Gave me the option to log out or refresh. tried to log out and it said twitter was over capacity,” one Twitter user wrote.

“TWITTER WAKE UP I DONT LIKE THIS WAKE UP,” another user said.

Despite the trouble experienced by users, Twitter’s status page still noted that all of its systems were “operational.” The hiccup’s cause is still unclear.

Twitter representatives did not immediately return a request for comment.
