Twitter users from widely distributed locations reported that they had encountered problems with the service Wednesday night, just days after Elon Musk announced that he had shut down one the company’s data centers located in Sacramento. According to Down Detector the problems affected only desktop users of the company’s website, while some users complained that its mobile app was also experiencing problems.
It was unclear what caused the outages. Some users reported being logged out of Twitter. Others claimed they could not see replies to their tweets, but can access other areas of the service. Others reported that they received error messages while scrolling through their timelines (which is the primary feed of tweets that people see when they log in to Twitter).
The errors began at 7 p.m. ET, according to Down Detector. This service monitors web outages. The hashtag #TwitterDown was popularized by users who shared their experiences during the outage.
“Twitter’s problems appear in many countries, and are widespread,” Isaac Matter (director of research at NetBlocks), an internet monitoring service, said. It added that the platform API, which is used to access the mobile app and many other aspects of the desktop website, was affected. This refers to the interface Twitter is currently working on.
Mr. Musk purchased Twitter in October for $44 billion He said on SaturdayTwitter continued to run smoothly even after I unplugged one my most sensitive server racks. The billionaire has been focusing on cutting costs, cancelling contracts with vendors, laying off workers, and reducing the company’s real estate footprint.
