A Twitter outage has hit people around the world

TWITTER has confirmed some users may be experiencing an outage on its platform.

In a statement, Twitter Support said: “Tweets may not be loading for some of you.

We’re working on fixing a problem and you’ll be back on the timeline soon.”

The outage follows a tumultuous start to the year in which the company permanently suspended then-US president Donald Trump’s account and expanded its use of warning labels to target misleading posts about coronavirus vaccines.

Twitter crashed in the early hours of this morning, leaving more than 40,000 users without access.

Many reported tweets not loading and being unable to log into the app.

Users across Europe, the US, Mexico, South Africa and the Philippines were among those frozen out of their accounts.

While the Down Detector service shows these initial outages have been resolved, there are reports of people still being unable to log back into their Twitter accounts.

We know there are thousands of National readers who want to debate, argue and go back and forth in the comments section of our stories.

We’ve got the most informed readers in Scotland, asking each other the big questions.

What should we do with our second vote in 2021? What happens if Westminster says no to indyref2?

Unfortunately, though, these important debates are being spoiled by a vocal minority of trolls who aren’t really interested in the issues, try to derail the conversation, register under fake names, and post vile abuse.

We’ve had hundreds of emails from you complaining about this, asking us to take steps to ensure that these people aren’t given a platform on our site.

We’re listening to you, and here’s how we plan to make that happen.

We have decided to make the ability to comment only available to our 12,000 paying subscribers.

That way, all the trolls who post abuse on our website will have to pay if they want to join the debate – and risk a permanent ban from the account that they subscribe with.

The conversation will go back to what it should be about – people who care passionately about the issues, but disagree constructively on what we should do about them.

We’ll be monitoring this change over the first few weeks, and we’re keen to know your thoughts.

Email us at if you want to have your say.

Twitter has reportedly experienced a wave of widespread outages across the UK and worldwide blocking users from the social network.

Web users were met with a message saying: ‘Something went wrong.

Try again.’

App users received an error screen saying: ‘Tweets aren’t loading right now’.

Users who managed to post on the site reported problems ranging from being unable to tweet to being unable to log-in.

Issues were reported in every continent worldwide.

It is the second wave of outages the service has undergone in three weeks, after a crash was widely reported on March 29. was able to access the service later on Saturday but reports continued to spike on Downdetector.

The monitor found almost half of the latest problems were reported by users trying to access the website.

App users with Apple’s operating system made up 37 per cent of reported problems, while 15 per cent came from Android phones.
