Twitter down: social media platform suffers global outage with users unable to post

Users in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States all reported issues.

 

A spokeswoman for Twitter told Guardian Australia they were working to resolve the issue.

 

“We know people are having trouble tweeting and using Twitter,” she said. “We’re working to fix this issue as quickly as possible.

 

“We’ll share more when we have it and tweet from @TwitterSupport when we can. Stay tuned.”

 

The outage comes just one day after Twitter took the unprecedented step to limit the spread of a controversial New York Post article critical of US presidential candidate Joe Biden, sparking outrage among conservatives and a debate over how social media platforms should tackle misinformation ahead of the US election.

Twitter blocked users from posting links to the story or photos from the unconfirmed report and users attempting to share the story were shown a notice saying: “We can’t complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.”
