Twitter back up after an almost two hour outage hit the platform

July 11, 2019

Social media giant Twitter is back up after an outage to its site, left users unable to log on for nearly two hours.

A short statement from the company said: "We are currently investigating issues people are having
accessing Twitter."

The company did not say how widespread the problem was, but the issue seemed to affect both web and app versions of the platform.

The site Downdetector.com showed around 70,000 reports at the peak of the outage, but by 8.45pm reports were down to just a couple of hundred.

A live outage map showed problems centred in the US, east Asia and western Europe.

Shares fell for the company on the New York Stock Exchange during the outage.

The downtime came as President Trump was hosting a social media conference at the White House alongside like-minded critics of big tech.
