The social network Twitter has crashed, unable to send tweets to millions of users worldwide.
Twitter users across the United States and Great Britain said they were unable to send tweets after the mistake, leaving the homepage feed blank.
The neglected outage began at around 10:30 pm on Thursday, according to information from DownDector.
One user wrote: “Twitter is broken or is it just me?”.
Twitter has not yet publicly commented publicly on the nature of the problem, which is the first time the platform has experienced this since February.
Yesterday, after posting a video about the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, Twitter temporarily blocked President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign account, saying it violated his rules.
The video follows a story in the New York Post from Wednesday that contains alleged details of Hunter Biden’s business dealings with a Ukrainian power company, and the former vice president meets with an adviser to the company.
Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s chief executive, tweeted on Wednesday, “Our communication about our activities in that NewPost article was not great. And why we are stopping sharing URLs via tweets or DMs in zero context: we don’t accept: not acceptable.”
Following the imposition of the ban on Twitter, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee moved to Dorsey Sub-Pen.
Committee chairpersons Lindy Graham and Republican senators Ted Cruz and Josh Howley said the committee will vote Tuesday, Oct. 20, on sending a sub-pension, and plans to have Dorsey before the committee by Oct. 23.
Senator Hawley also called for sending a subpoena to Facebook.
“We’ll finally have an accounting that’s out of the long run,” Graham said. “It crystallizes the problem to me better than I could have imagined.”
