New Delhi: Microblogging site Twitter faced several outages on Thursday night after several users claimed to have received messages such as “something went wrong” and “try again” on the website’s screen as well as on the mobile app.
While some had problems sending tweets, several others had problems checking comments on an existing tweet.
Some users also claimed that Twitter went completely down because they couldn’t see their own tweets. The full platform dashboard went blank with the message “Something went wrong. Try reloading.”
Is Twitter down for anyone else? I can’t access anything on my own profile. #TwitterDown

The outage was also reported downdetector – a platform that provides real-time insight into issues and outages with all kinds of services.
There has been no official comment from Twitter on the matter so far.
This is not the first time that the microblogging platform has reported a technical bug. Even on Friday (February 11), Twitter reported a similar outage after which the tech giant said it fixed a technical bug that prevented timelines from loading and posting tweets.
Later, Twitter Inc apologized for the technical nag and tweeted from its official support that things should be “back to normal now”.
