Earlier today, Twitter experienced an outage worldwide, started around 5.30am according to Downdetector. Ars Technica reports that users found themselves unable to use the platform as usual. Twitter’s website, mobile app, and features like posting and retweeting were also affected by the outages, which were “not related to country-level Internet disruptions or filtering.”

Certain users encountered an error message, saying that they have reached the 2,400 daily tweet limit even though they did not.

Some users found that scheduling their postings allowed them to continue tweeting, while some brands still seemed to be able to do so. Fortune reporter, Kylie Robison claims that Elon Musk emailed the staff and told them to pause any new feature development and focus on making sure that Twitter is stable for users first.

She also tweeted that the outage could be due to consolidation of data centres and reducing Google Cloud Platform (GCP) usage.

At the time of writing, Elon Musk hasn’t tweeted anything about the outage, probably because he was too busy fixing it.
