Is Twitter down?

On Tuesday, March 8, Twitter users started reporting problems with the social media outlet around 10am.

There were more than 3,200 reports of issues with the platform in the 30 minutes since it was flagged.

The majority of complaints stemmed from using the app at 66 percent, while 25 percent experienced issues with the website and 9 percent reported a service connection issue, according to Down Detector.

How can I check if Twitter is down?

Anyone who wants to check if their Twitter account is fully operating should first try to log into their account.

If the message, "This page is down. I scream… You scream… We all scream… for us to fix this page. We'll stop making jokes and get things up and running soon," appears, then the site is down for you.

However, despite an uptick in outages, some users are not reporting any issues with Twitter and have full access to the site.

Users can also check Down Detector to see if others are experiencing similar issues with the app.
