Twitter Suffers Major Outage – Users Face Trouble Signing-in Globally

Twitter Increases Tweet Character Limit

Listen to Podcast:

On Wednesday, when people tried to log in to the microblogging site, they got an error message.

Twitter has been down for a long time, making it hard for many people to use popular social media sites.

Late on Wednesday, some people who tried to log in to the microblogging site got an error message.

Downdetector, a site that keeps track of website outages, said that as of 7:30 a.m. EST, more than 8,700 users had reported problems with the site (12:30 pm GMT).

Downdetector said in a tweet, “User reports say Twitter has been having trouble since 7:13 EST.”

The problem, which seems to be happening in more than one country, hasn’t shut down the site completely, as many users can still get on. Some users also said that the desktop version of the platform worked differently than the mobile version.

Elon Musk bought Twitter for $44 billion in October. Late Wednesday night, he tweeted that the site “Works for me.”

As of 10:11pm EST, Downdetector had only received 774 reports of errors from users. This meant that the problem seemed to be getting better.

Since Musk took over Twitter, there has been a lot of trouble on the platform, which has divided its users.

Musk is the CEO of Tesla and one of the richest people in the world. He has cut the platform’s staff, added a paid subscriber service, and made controversial changes to its moderation policies, which he says are a win for free speech.

Conservatives, who have long said that Twitter favors liberal views, are happy that Musk now owns the platform. However, many people on the left are worried about the rise of hate speech and false information while he is in charge.

Musk’s focus on the platform, where he often posts his thoughts about current events, has also worried investors in Tesla, whose share price has dropped nearly 70% this year.
