Twitter considers the service outage resolved an hour later

Twitter has resolved the failures that it has experienced around the world an hour after it began to give problems when uploading photos or viewing the desktop version correctly.

“Things should be running normally. Thanks for staying with us!” The social network wrote 50 minutes after admitting in another tweet that “some parts of Twitter are not working as expected at the moment.”

The company, which thus suffers its second global fall in less than a week, did not give many details about the reasons, except that they had undertaken “some changes internally with unforeseen consequences.”

According to the DownDetector website, which monitors in real time the incidents that are registered in the main technology companies, the first problems have begun to be registered around 16:53 GMT and have affected users around the world.

Users of the platform have reported failures when accessing the desktop version through the computer, clicking on links published on the web or tweeting images.

In some cases, messages posted by other users years ago have jumped to the “feed” of some accounts as if they were new.

This is the second fall that Twitter suffers in less than a week, after last Wednesday the social network, owned by Elon Musk, suffered failures that prevented some profiles from seeing new messages sent by their followers or updating the home page .

The network has not offered explanations about what is happening or if it may be related to the departure -in most cases due to layoffs, but also voluntary- of numerous network engineers, some of them in charge of network security tasks. and continuity of service.

The newspaper The New York Times assured last week that the last round of layoffs, 9 days ago, meant the departure of 10% of the 2,000 people that made up the workforce after several rounds of cuts that have left the company with practically the a quarter of its staff, as there were 7,500 at the time Elon Musk bought the company.
