Listen to this article

With several users complained that were facing issues in accessing Twitter on 9 August, the micro-blogging platform has confirmed that the problem is now fixed.

Earlier, the affected users were seeing a popup notice about the service being unavailable when attempting to access it, reported MacRumors. On the Down Detector website, there were thousands of reports about the outage.

Even if Twitter did load after several minutes, in some instances, the experience was quite broken as images didn't appear and tweets were often several hours old.

Taking the note from complaints by users, the Twitter support account acknowledged the issue during the partial outage. It wrote, "Twitter may not be loading for some of you – we're working on a fix to get you back to your timelines ASAP."

As the issue got fixed, an hour later, Twitter confirmed that the issue has been resolved.

Even in July, Twitter experienced an outage for about an hour, reported Variety. Similar instance took place on 17 February, coming less than a week after another hour-long outage, which the company ascribed as a "technical bug" that was preventing timelines from loading and tweets from posting.
