Twitter suffers widespread outage lasting over an hour


Twitter experienced an outage Thursday as users found themselves unable to access the social media platform for over an hour.

“We are currently investigating issues people are having accessing Twitter,” a message appeared on the company’s status page. ” We will keep you updated on whats happening.”

Twitter later said “an internal configuration change” was responsible for the disruption.

Down Detector, a website that tracks outages, reported the outage began just after 2:45 p.m. ET. The disruption affected Twitter’s mobile and web-based platforms.

“Something is technically wrong,” appeared when users tried accessing the site. The site came back online around 3:50 p.m.

The outage came as President Trump was hosting a social media summit with right-wing personalities and tech industry critics who’ve accused Twitter and other websites of having an anti-conservative bias.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
