Twitter suffers major outage, several users face trouble signing in
New Delhi, December 29: According to the reports shared by Al Jazeera, Twitter suffered a major outage on Thursday, with many users on its web version failing to log in and receiving error messages when trying to log in.
Users tweeted early Thursday morning that they received an error message when trying to access the service. Al Jazeera, citing Downdetector, which tracks website outages, said that as of 7:30 a.m. EST (12:30 p.m. GMT), more than 8,700 users had reported issues with the website.
"User reports indicate Twitter is having problems since 7:13 EST," Downdetector said in a tweet.
The suspension comes two months after Elon Musk acquired Twitter in a $44 billion deal.
One of the world's richest men, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, has slashed the platform's staff, rolled out paid memberships for his services, and introduced a divisive approach to moderation procedures.
In a final step, Musk decided to reform his Twitter policy, stating that his new Twitter policy would follow suit and challenge science.
