Users had a major issue on Monday night when Twitter’s web-based service became unavailable for at least three hours beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET. During the Twitter Service Disruption, users from all around the world were unable to access the social media network over the web. Users were using the mobile app normally, and it was fully functional.
Twitter finally fixes its service disruption
When they couldn’t access their accounts via the web, consumers moved to mobile, where they received a warning from the company about the issue. Following the outage, users from all around the world sent reports of service disruptions, with the majority of the claims coming from New York City. Twitter’s web interface was certified by the outrage-tracking website Downdetector to be down and inaccessible to a large number of users. Twitter Support tweeted the following:
“Twitter may not be functioning properly for some of you online. We’re investigating it so you can return to reading Tweets.
The social media platform is used by users for more than just posting and chatting; many users also utilise it for critical commercial transactions and official duties, which were impacted and left many users in a tough situation for a few hours.
This disruption is the latest in a string of outage situations that have affected the social media site over the past few months. A few weeks ago, there was a Twitter outage that affected the company’s services on iOS, Android, and the web globally. The app was unable to upload fresh tweets during this occurrence. Two occurrences that happened back in June and July interrupted the service for a number of hours. Following the 7:30 p.m. outage, engineers began investigating the issue, which was eventually fixed in three hours. At 10:15 p.m. ET, the corporate Support account tweeted to users to let them know:
“We’ve rectified issue, and Twitter for the web should be operating normally again.”
The world depends so heavily on the internet and social media platforms that if anything goes wrong, both daily life and employment start to suffer. A few users and the platform itself may suffer severe losses after a few hours of downtime.
