Twitter suffers a widespread global downturn | technology

The social network Twitter has been experiencing failures since 11 am Spanish Peninsula time. The platform does not upload messages written by users and does not allow the homepage to be updated. Allows you to write new posts, but archives, or timetable, don’t pick it up normally. Problems occur both in the mobile applications and on the computer. The company has not yet reported the cause of the failure or how long it estimates it will last.

According to DownDetector, a website that specializes in detecting incidents in real-time online services, messages aren’t loading and you’re having problems sending them, as reported by several users. The aforementioned page has logged incidents since 11am Spanish Peninsula time. In the US, at least 4,500 users have opened an incident on DownDetector, according to Reuters. Another 1,600 French users also reported problems with the Blue Bird social network, according to AFP. In Spain, more than 2,000 complaints have been registered, although not all users who have had mishaps with the app report this.

This is the second major outage in the system since Elon Musk acquired Twitter in October last year for $44 billion. The first major failure occurred at the end of December, when the social network caused problems for several hours to tens of thousands of users around the world. On that occasion, access to the social network was blocked and some of its main functions failed, such as the ability to access the account from the computer or the inability to upload certain tweets.

One of the measures Musk implemented after taking control of the social network was to fire more than half of the workforce. This prompted complaints from many observers, reasoning that the platform’s systems could be left unprotected in the event of an unforeseen event.
