Social media platform Twitter appears to have suffered an outage in many countries across the world, leaving millions of users unable to post on its platform.
The entire Twitter site went down for a number of minutes and, although it was quickly brought back online, users have been unable to tweet or retweet anything for nearly an hour.
Those who attempt to post are met with an error message stating Twitter is “overcapacity”, or a note simple stating “Oops, something went wrong”.
Users in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States all reported issues.
A spokeswoman for Twitter told Guardian Australia they were working to resolve the issue.
“We know people are having trouble tweeting and using Twitter,” she said. “We’re working to fix this issue as quickly as possible.
“We’ll share more when we have it and tweet from @TwitterSupport when we can. Stay tuned.”
