Twitter Down: When Twitter was down, See how user react
Twitter has been in the news a lot lately, for good and bad reasons. Since Elon Musk took over the social media giant, he has made numerous changes to the platform, with mixed reactions from users. However, platform outages can be the worst thing that can happen to platform owners and users, and today the Twitter network suffered a massive outage as thousands of Twitter users failed to register through their Twitter network accounts to connect to their users.
The recent Twitter outages seem to be a global issue, but most of the reports are from India, as many Twitter users in the country reported on Twitter (well, mobile) that they were not registered with their accounts to log into the Twitter site .
After logging in, the Twitter site posted a message: “Something went wrong, but don’t worry – it’s not your fault. Let’s try again.” But trying again didn’t do much, as we kept trying for 2 hours, but to no avail. The web version of Twitter constantly gives us the option to refresh or log out. When we cleared the browsing history, everything worked, but the account kept being logged out, but those with active TweetDeck sessions were still able to access Twitter on the web (we tested this independently and can confirm this).
The peak of the outage occurred around 6:00AM IST, and DownDetector reported that more than 10,000 people reported outages. “Twitter is experiencing an international outage affecting mobile apps and functionality, including notifications; the incident is not related to national-level internet outages or filtering,” Netblocks reported via tweet.
Interestingly, people are reporting Twitter outages on Twitter itself by accessing the app on their smartphones. Many users took to Twitter to air their displeasure, with some (obviously) posting tons of memes. Here are some of them:
