Panic In The Tweets, As Twitter Goes Down For A Time On Friday Evening

·1-min read

Social media users were sent into apoplexy Friday, as social media tool Twitter was briefly out of service.

The outage started at around 5 PM Pacific time, but was restored in a half-hour. But that was enough time for about 5,000 complaints to show up at the downdetector.com website. The outage marks the second time in three weeks Twitter has been out of commission.

Try again.” In the Twitter app, an error message said, “Tweets aren’t loading right now.”

Many users joked about their frustration, comparing life without Twitter to the stone age.

Twitter’s support team posted a message saying they were working on the problem.
