Twitter Returns to Normal After Global Outage
Almost an hour after Twitter faced a global outage, the micro-blogging website returned to normal and is now back up.
Twitter on late Thursday night, 11 July, was down for several users across the world who complained about the website not opening on various social media platforms including Facebook.
As Twitter returned to normal, CEO Jack Dorsey said that the micro blogging website is “slowly coming back up.”
“Grateful for our operations and engineering teams for getting us flying again,” he said.
During the outage, online service interruptions detector-website, Downdetector, reported over 1000 complains against Twitter around midnight.
A live outage map by the website showed areas severely affected are parts of United States and United Kingdom.
In India, parts that were affected, according to Downdetector, included Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad.
