Is Twitter down? Social network experiences connection issues

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.

“My Twitter page isn’t showing any tweets. Not the best time for this to happen. I hope they fix the problem soon,” wrote a frustrated user over on Down Detector.

“Down again via app. This is getting all too common,” vented another.
