Is Twitter down again? Twitter is one of the most used social media platforms worldwide. The microblog enables users to share their short messages across the world. But, the social media website left many of its addicts with no way of sharing their views on Thursday.
The users were forced to return back to their ancient way of broadcasting i.e. Facebook because Twitter went down. If you are also wondering about the outage, you are absolutely right! But, the site is back now!
Twitter Team identified the issues
According to Twitter’s latest update on its status page, the outage was due to the internal configuration change which is now fixed. People are now able to access Twitter across various parts of the world. As soon as, the social media website went live, people started sharing jokes about the outage.
