Twitter users are currently facing problems globally with users unable to access the micro-blogging website or its mobile app.
When users try to access Twitter’s website, they see the message “Welcome to Twitter!” on their timeline. The alert, which is typically used for new signups, reads: “Twitter is the best place to see what’s happening in your world,” or includes a “Let’s go” button that allows you to follow some people and topics.
Individual accounts and the ability to send new tweets are still available on the site. But attempting to load a timeline — whether “For You” or “Following” — simply does not work. There has been an increase in reports for the site on DownDetector, and users on Twitter are reporting broken timelines in Pakistan, India, the United States, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere. Lists (curated groups of users) appear to still work, so try that if your feed isn’t loading otherwise.
Twitter.com is still available and you can send new tweets but you cannot load the latest tweets or refresh for updated content.
It is unclear whether this is planned maintenance, a problem with their servers, or an attack on their networks.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
