Twitter Glitches Pile Up as Key Features Fail

Issues were so common #TwitterDown hashtag began trending

Twitter users around the world reported that they could no longer post messages or send messages to one another on Wednesday, the latest in a series of glitches at the social media service owned by Elon Musk.

The problems began around 4:45 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, when users who tried posting messages saw a notification that said they were “over the daily limit for sending tweets.” Others found they were unable to follow new accounts, and some were logged out of their accounts altogether. Direct messages and the search function for GIFs also stopped working.

Downdetector, a service that collects user reports of outages, also said Twitter was experiencing problems. By 7 p.m. Eastern time, some users began tweeting again as features were partly restored.
