Bad news: Twitter is down for a number of users around the world.
Twitter started experiencing connection issues at around 3 pm BST in Asia, Africa and Europe (MENA), according to information shared on uptime tracker Down Detector, with reports of an outage in North America surfacing at 3:15 pm BST.
Users are being greeted by a sad-looking robot, alongside the error message: “Something is technically wrong. Thanks for noticing—we’re going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon,” when attempting to fire up the platform.
And naturally, they’re unhappy.
