About two hours later, at 8:19 p.m., nearly 30,000 Twitter users reported the problem.
The Downdetector chart shows “a view of crash reports submitted over the last 24 hours versus typical report volume by time of day.”
“Downdetector only reports crashes when the number of crash reports is significantly higher than typical volumes for that time of day,” the website explains.
According to Downdetector, 53% of Twitter users have problems with the website, 36% of users have problems with the app, and 12% report problems with the server connection.
Twitter users took to Downdetector to explain what they were experiencing, with one stating: “Trying to read tweets that responded saying ‘uh-oh something went wrong’ or something like that.”
Another commented: “I can refresh the app, but I can’t open any tweets.
“I get the error “CAN’T LOAD TWEET – RETRY”. I can’t search for anything either.”
“Nice to see I’m not alone. Looks like I can still tweet, but it doesn’t help if no one can respond,” the user concluded.
A third user wrote in the comments section of Downdetector: “Neither the website nor the app work, the tweets are not loading and the site is logging me out.”
“The reply doesn’t work fully, it sends and returns errors at the same time, potentially allowing duplicates of the same message even though the system doesn’t allow it,” complained a fourth Twitter user.
Another said: “Can’t access tweets. Nothing is loading properly.”
At around 8:30 p.m., another Twitter user wrote to Downdetector: “It’s crashing worldwide. Sadly, I predict this is the year of cyberattacks.”
One user asked on Downdetector: “Twitter not working on PC. MAC, iOS App in Phoenix, AZ, here, anyone else”.
This is not the first time Twitter users have encountered a problem through their website or mobile device.
Downdetector reported the following issues with Twitter, including logging in through their website or on their mobile device, in September and November 2021.
