Twitter seems to be down for some people around the world. People in India are also affected. According to DownDetector, outage tracking, the outage began around 5:10 p.m. IST. Earlier today, around 6 a.m. IST, there was a much larger global outage.
Users who try to access their Twitter accounts in India abruptly log out. The login page returns an error that reads: “An error has occurred – it’s not your fault. Let’s try again. “
As of yet, there is no statement from Twitter on this matter. But according to data from DownDetector, we can see that almost 1,000 people in India and around 9,000 people worldwide have reported a Twitter outage.
Predictably enough, people who can still access Twitter post there asking if the social network is down.
