Twitter suffers a global crash that leads to social network failures

The Twitter social network and its Tweetdeck management platform have started recording bugs since last Tuesday night, as recognized by the company's support service through its own messaging system. The company has not reported the causes or forecasts back to normal until 13.09 on Wednesday, when it has sent a tweet in which it has warned that it was about to be resolved. However, Tweetdeck is back to normal at 18.53 Madrid time

"We are working and reporting," the technical support was reported in a tweet half a day ago while its web information blogs (neither international nor Spanish) issued any warning communication.

We're currently experiencing a problem displaying new follower counts for everyone in https://t.co/KqsFaj2AYI. We're looking into it and will be following up with updates.

Failures have prevented the use of the messaging platform, which has deployed an ad in the form of banner warning of the inability to continue with the features and that the user's session would be automatically disabled.

Accounts accounts and the singular-use app have also been logged. "Sorry, that page doesn't exist." This is the message that Twitter has deployed when trying the search function.

We've been experiencing outages across Twitter and TweetDeck. You might have trouble Tweeting, getting notifications, or viewing DMs. We're currently working on a fix, and should be back to normal soon.

"Users may be experiencing problems tweeting and sending their messages on the platform, as well as to receive notifications (mentions, responses...) or to be able to access your direct message tray," said support.

Likewise, some users have been affected by the tracking function of the follower list, which has not been deployed or released erroneous data, as well as the possibility to include videos or images.

The bug occurs after the Twitter service stopped working for a full hour by an "internal configuration change".

last July.

The direct messages feature was also troubled in the same month, coinciding with a design change of its desktop product.

Outage, the website that tracks service interruptions, has recorded more than 4,000 incident reports worldwide, and especially in Japan, Canada, India, France, Thailand, Russia, Tunisia and other countries. Downdetector, another similar website, has also multiplied bug reports in recent hours with bug reports in South America and the United States
