Twitter had a major outage issue earlier this morning. Although initial reports indicated that users of the platform using desktops and laptops to log in to Twitter’s web services were facing difficulties, a later report revealed that users using the Twitter app on iOS and Android devices used also encountered problems.
Both mobile and desktop users were unable to access the website or manage notifications and were greeted with pop-up messages.
Over 10,000 users reported problems accessing the social media site in the United States as of 7:40 p.m. ET. While some users reported being automatically logged out, others complained that their Twitter notifications weren’t working.
“Twitter is experiencing international outages impacting mobile app and functionality including notifications; Incident unrelated to country-level internet disruption or filtering,” Netblocks said in a tweet.
Since Musk took over and ditched a number of engineers responsible for running the platform, analysts have claimed that the platform is now at risk of repeated crashes with very few people working on maintenance. Although Musk has hired some people to maintain the servers and the codes Twitter uses to stay functional, the number of people hired is unparalleled to what the maintenance team used to have.
Several users took to Twitter and shared that they couldn’t log in.
User reports indicate that Twitter has been having trouble since 7:13 p.m. EST. https://t.co/qqqwagygy9 RT if you also have problems None

Although services were restored in many areas and several people who complained about not being able to log in later reported that they were able to log in again, Twitter has remained choppy in other areas.
