Twitter is again down for several people. This is the second time that the microblogging site is not working today. As per Downdetector, more than 1,000 Twitter users are currently experiencing some issue. Out of these, 13 percent of people are experiencing log in issues. The rest of the users are not able to use the web or mobile version of Twitter.
We were also not able to access the app. Twitter is showing a message, which says “Something went wrong, but don’t fret — it’s not your fault. Let’s try again.” A lot of users are not able to refresh the page or open a profile on Twitter as the app says “The term you entered did not bring up any results. Please try again later.” When we try to reload the page, Twitter says “Cannot retrieve Tweets at this time. Please try again later.” But, some of the people are able to tweet via mobile and TweetDeck.
Earlier today, it was reported that around 40,000 users were not able to access Twitter. Most of the Twitter user started reporting problems just before 5:30AM IST. The company acknowledged the issue, after thousands of users reported problems with the platform.
