San Francisco: Micro-blogging platform Twitter on Wednesday faced a major outage globally, with users reporting that the site's timeline is not loading on either the web or mobile apps. The service resumed after a short while.
According to the outage monitor website Down Detector, over 56 per cent of people had reported problems while using the application, 37 per cent while using the website, and 7 per cent with server connection.
Users from various countries, including the US, the UK, Japan, and India, began reporting issues with the site.
The users claimed social media website was not allowing users to refresh their feeds. Issues were reflected not only on the web version but also on the Twitter app for iPhone and Android.
For most users, Twitter showed "What's happening?" while using the application.
Last month, the microblogging site also faced a global outage.
According to the outage monitor website, over 85 per cent of people had reported problems while using the application, 8 per cent while using the website, and 7 per cent with server connection.
However, the company fixed the "trouble" that many iOS users experienced earlier.
The company tweeted from its @TwitterSupport account: "Pardon the interruption! iOS users may have experienced some trouble using Twitter earlier. Things should be back to normal now."
So far, there has been no word from Twitter Support about the outage, but the site has become increasingly glitchy since Elon Musk's takeover and widespread layoffs.
Twitter is now down to less than 2,000 employees from 7,500.
After connectivity was restored, many users swarmed the microblogging platform to share their thoughts on the outage.
Some found humour in the situation and shared hilarious memes.
Some users took the opportunity to troll the new Twitter CEO Elon Musk.
