What you need to know

  • Twitter is reporting issues with tweets and user accounts this afternoon.
  • Earlier this afternoon tweets were slow to appear for many users.
  • Other issues are reporting that their accounts are locked, limited, or they've been logged out and unable to log back in.

It has not been a good day for the the little blue bird on our home screens as Twitter deals with a variety of issues plaguing users today. First, Twitter acknowledged issues with delays in tweets appearing, where tweets weren't showing up quickly on timelines. A short time later, more issues were confirmed to be plauging many users and impacting their ability to tweet.

Twitter was quick to deny that the locked-out accounts were due to any particular content they engaged with, but there's still no word on when impacted users can get back into their account and start tweeting again normally. If you're impacted, your best bet is leaving things alone for a few hours and waiting for Twitter to fix their mistake; maybe go outside to enjoy the autumn air (weather on the East Coast is surprisingly nice today).

  • Train wreck Twitter
  • Yeah. Right.
    "Sorry... it was a glitch."
  • Seems like more of a strategic purge to me... We know full well which way Jack leans.
  • Got sick of Twitter awhile ago and uninstalled it. Started using the Parler app and couldn't be happier.
