Twitter Down: Microblogging site suffers outage for multiple web users in India amid buzz from new CEO

New Delhi, November 30: Twitter faced an outage on Tuesday primarily for its web users in India, as they reported issues accessing its website. The outage came as the microblogging platform was buzzing with posts about its new Indian-born CEO, Parag Agrawal, who was previously the platform’s technical director.

According to Downdetector, a website that monitors app crashes, Twitter users started facing the problem around 6 p.m., especially on the web version. Almost 81 percent of users experienced issues with the Twitter website, 10 percent with the feed, and 9 percent on the mobile app at that time.

Twitter had not yet reported the cause of the outage. It is one of those platforms, which rarely suffers from an outage, giving an outlet for millions of people on other social media platforms to come and post. Twitter prohibits the sharing of photos and videos of individuals without consent, the move comes the day after Parag Agrawal takes office as CEO.

In April of this year, Twitter went down in the United States. Twitter users, especially on the east coast of the United States, reported issues loading pages and were unable to send tweets and direct messages (DMs).

In March, Twitter users in various countries encountered issues such as slow loading of apps and were unable to send DMs. The crash impacted the website, as well as Twitter’s iPhone and Android apps in the US, UK, China and other parts of the world.
