Twitter down: Social Media Platform Suffers Global Blackout, Users Cannot Post | Technology


Twitter suffered several outages in many countries around the world, preventing millions of users from posting on its platform.The company confirmed that an “inadvertent change” to its internal systems caused the crashes throughout the American evening and Australian morning.

The entire social media site went down for several minutes, and although it was quickly brought back online, users were unable to tweet or retweet anything for over an hour.

Those who tried to post received an error message stating that Twitter was “overcapacity,” or a simple note saying, “Oops, something went wrong.”

The “notifications” and “mentions” feeds were also not available.

The site continued to function periodically for a number of users. People in Australia, UK, and US have all reported issues.
