Twitter down for thousands of users in sudden outage

Thousands of Twitter users were unable to access the social media platform on Wednesday.

More than 2,939 users reported issues with the platform as of 10 am, according to outage monitoring website Downdetector.com.

Downdetector tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform.

The outage seems to be primarily affecting the app while some users have reported issues with the website as well.

The unexplained collapse follows Elon Musk’s latest round of layoffs this week where he fired around 200 product managers, data scientists and engineers responsible for site reliability.

Twitter has not addressed the issue yet as more people continue to have trouble accessing their timeline.
