According to our sources, we have got to know that more than 55,000 users have reported Twitter Down as they were facing trouble to access their Twitter accounts. Twitter was going through an inadvertent change in its internal system and thus, got through an outage. However, the entire issue took place for just an hour, post which everything appeared to be ‘just the normal.’
For some users, the time got a bit prolonged and it took around one and a half hours for the services to be back all over again. Twitter down did report a breach recently wherein we got to hear that the hackers had accessed the internal systems to hijack the top voices across this platform. Some of those accounts include the US presidential candidate Joe Biden, reality TV star, Kim Kardashian and thus, accessed them in order to solicit the digital currency.
Twitter Down: The social media platform suffered a global outage
Twitter did suffer a global outage on Thursday for one and a half hour but things are now restored all over again. The company tweeted, “And we’re all clear –– Twitter should be working as expected for everyone. Thanks for sticking with us.” It further added, “Twitter has been down for many of you and we’re working to get it back up and running for everyone.”
As per Bloomberg, this outage occurred particularly for the residents who have been residing in between New York to that of Sydney. As per the data available, the users on the Twitter were having to face this problem after 5.30 PM ET. The users were unable to send tweets nor were they able to refresh their contents across that timeline. However, the services got back to normal after 7 PM ET. After an hour, Twitter did acknowledge this particular issue and said, “we had some trouble with our internal systems and don’t have any evidence of a security breach or hack.”
Once the things were set to normal, Twitter further took it back to the social media platform addressing the users so that they stay informed, “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.”
