Twitter hit by outages across Europe, North America & Asia
Twitter has experienced an outage in parts of Europe, North America and Asia. The micro-blogging website went down about 14:00 GMT, according to Down Detector, a website which tracks technical problems on social media.
Users took to another social media giant, Facebook, to report outages on the east coast of the US, Canada, Japan and the Philippines Tuesday.
On average, 330 million people use Twitter on a monthly basis. User comments online appear to suggest that both desktop and mobile users are affected.
The site came back online within an hour.
Some users may have experienced problems sending and viewing Tweets earlier today. This issue is now resolved.— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) April 17, 2018
