Twitter is BACK online following a more than one hour worldwide outage


Twitter was hit with a worldwide outage that has left thousands frustrated just as the work week had begun. 

The crash impacted the website, along with both Twitter’s iPhone and Android apps.

Twitter is just one of the many social media platforms to crash in the last two weeks – Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp crashed just two weeks ago.

But the Twitter outage may be one of the most frustrating, as it hit Monday morning when many Americans were just starting their work day.

 Boston, New York, Washington, Atlanta and Dallas were among the major cities shown in red on DownDetector’s outage map.

And following 30 minute the first report, DownDetector showed more than 16,000 Americans were affected by the crash.

Twitter has yet to address the outage.

Some Facebook users were able to sign in to the app, although 63 percent of reports on DownDetector.com suggested there was a ‘total blackout’.

However, Twitter seems to rarely have issues – except for an October 15 event that derailed more than 50,000 accounts.

The social media giant went down for several hours for thousands of users across the globe soon, leaving them unable to share tweets, see notifications or refresh the News Feed.

More than 50,000 users worldwide reported issues soon after 5p.m. E.T. on Down Detector, which monitors websites and online services.

By 11:30 p.m. Twitter announced the problem had been resolved and it was in the ‘all clear’ with all systems now ‘operational’ again.
