Twitter was again down! But this wasn’t the first time.
Twitter Down: For over an hour, Elon Musk’s platform, X, basically widely popular, experienced a major disruption across the world. Mobile app users faced unresponsive timelines, while those on the web were greeted with a message stating, “Welcome to X! This is the best place to see what’s happening in your world. Find some people and topics to follow now.” Several internet trackers, such as Downdetector and Netblocks, reported a “significant international outage.”
NetBlocks reported, “Social media platform X (previously known as Twitter) is experiencing a significant international outage, with timelines not loading and posts failing; incident not related to country-level internet disruptions or filtering #TwitterDown.”
After an hour-long impact, when Twitter came back, users rushed to the platform to begin the hilarious meme fest. Here are some reactions by netizens.
