Twitter Goes Down Again In Widespread Outage; Cause Identified

Twitter down: Users unable to logon

Twitter seems to be finding its voice again. Most queries on the social media platform were resulting in an error page for users all over the world.

Twitter users are now experiencing challenges logging into the microblogging site.

Downdetector showed reports from around the globe confirming Twitter was down starting at 11:46 a.m. PT.

According to Downdetector.com, the outage didn't just affect people in the United States. Most recently, the short-form social media service was having difficulties with its direct messaging feature. Tens of thousands of users worldwide reported problems accessing the site to the internet trouble-tracking site.

It comes as Reddit experienced similar issues this morning into the afternoon, leaving users unable to access the site or load any posts.

Twitter blamed the outage on an "internal configuration change". "Thanks for noticing - we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon", a message on the website's homepage reads.

The social networking site posted a message on its status page that read, "We are now investigating issues people are having accessing Twitter".

We've reached out to Twitter for comment on the outage and will update this story when we hear back.

Last week when Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were down, Twitter was briefly hit too, affecting users worldwide.
