Twitter, TweetDeck suffer global outage, affects images, DMs: Many Twitter users woke up with no Twitter notifications this morning after the micro-blogging platform and its dashboard management platform Tweetdeck experienced an outage. Earlier on Tuesday, the company informed the users that it was facing a problem displaying new follower counts for everyone in a Twitter post. In the morning too, the Twitter assured that it was working on a fix and users will soon be able to receive tweets and view DMs.
Reports said that more than 4,000 users reported their problem from across the world including Japan, Canada, and India. The issues with the Tweetdeck were also noted by the company after a series of complaints. Ever since its existence, Tweetdeck has become one of the most powerful tools for most of the journalists and content creators across the globe as it helps them to keep an eye on recent tweets posted by the competition.
We’ve been experiencing outages across Twitter and TweetDeck. You might have had trouble Tweeting, getting notifications, or viewing DMs. We’re currently working on a fix, and should be back to normal soon.
