Twitter appears to be making a comeback for some users after experiencing an hour-long outage that affected both its app and website on Thursday.
People who tried to use the social media platform received a message saying, “Tweets are not loading at this time. Please try again.” According to Downdetector, users began reporting the outage around 8 a.m. EDT. About an hour later, service began to return.
own twitter status page offered no information during the outage, displaying only the “All Operating Systems” message.
Internet monitoring group Netblocks, which tracks attempts to intentionally block internet access, says Twitter was “experiencing significant international outages” but was “not related to country-level internet outages or filtering.” .
The global blackout came at a tumultuous time for Twitter, which is suing billionaire Elon Musk in an attempt to force him to buy the company for $44 billion.
Twitter was famous for outages in its early days, but as it grew, problems became less common. Still, he suffered cuts earlier this year, in February.
