#TwitterDown: Social Network Suffers Global Outage With Users Unable To Post

Twitter on Thursday night suffered an outage in many countries across the world.

This left millions of users unable to post to its platform.

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

An error message saying Twitter is “overcapacity”, or a note simple saying: “Oops, something went wrong”, poped up for those who tried to post.

The “notifications” and “mentions” feeds were also unavailable.

Users in Nigeria, Australia, UK and the US all reported problems.

Twitter support had this to say when the platform was down: “Twitter has been down for many of you and we’re working to get it back up and running for everyone.

“We had some trouble with our internal systems and don’t have any evidence of a security breach or hack.”

In a later tweet it said:

“Most of you should be back to Tweeting. The outage was caused by a system change initiated earlier then planned, affecting most of our servers. We’re working hard to bring Twitter back to normal and expect things to be fully resolved in 1-2 hours. We appreciate your patience.”
