Hold onto your hot takes, tweeters! If you’re experiencing issues with Twitter today, you’re not alone.
Reports of “Is Twitter down?” and “My Twitter isn’t working!” have been flooding social media throughout the day, on Google, and other social media sites causing confusion and a fair amount of FOMO (fear of missing out) among the X (formerly Twitter) users.
Thousands of X (formerly Twitter) users have reported outages, with web users seeing welcome messages on their feeds.
“Welcome to X! This is the best place to see what’s happening in your world. Find some people and topics to follow now,” the message reads.
Users encountered loading issues on X Pro, formerly TweetDeck, with a message that said “Waiting for posts.”
Over 47,000 U.S. users faced access issues with X and X Pro, according to Downdetector, which tracks outages by collating status reports from several sources including users.
X has witnessed multiple outages since the takeover by Elon Musk and the subsequent mass layoff. Musk renamed Twitter to X, changed some of its content rules, and lost more than half of its advertising revenue.
Interestingly the explore page is working fine which is showing what’s trending currently, but when you click on it you won’t go any further because X/Twitter’s server was down.
When you go to the explore page you can see that topics like My Twitter, Did Twitter, Not Twitter, Welcome to X, is Twitter down, etc are trending.
UPDATE: X/Twitter is back and you can currently use it without any problems.
