Twitter users on 17 Feb found themselves unable to log onto the platform as the US social media giant was not accessible. The move was abrupt considering the Netizens broadcasting space was down for a while.
The incident occurred for a few minutes at 2:45 pm where access to micro-blogging giant Twitter was next to impossible.
It needs to be mentioned that a similar sort of incident also surfaced on Feb 7 where twitter was broken for a brief moment.
At that time, there was still a secret way to tweet: members of The Verge, as well as other news organizations and avid Twitter users, discovered that scheduling tweets let you successfully get your message out there.
Twitter’s status page said it’s “a possible system irregularity currently affecting all data products and real-time APIs.”
You can get back to Tweeting –– this problem has been fixed! Thanks for sticking with us through that. 💙
