According to the website downdetector.com, thousands of users complained about the outage, which was concentrated in the US, United Kingdom and Japan. The micro-blogging site failed to load, with users being redirected to a default landing page. The website was down for a couple of minutes from around 7.20 pm India time. Apart from normal citizens, the micro-blogging site is famously used by Bollywood personalities, politicians, political parties, and other government portals. The Twitter app for mobile meanwhile is failing to "retrieve your tweets" as of this moment.
According to UK's Independent, citing the website DownDetector, there were a number of problems with the site on Tuesday evening. The app also seems to be affected by the outage as users are not able to tweet and refresh the news feed.
