Twitter experienced its first significant outage

Keypoints

On Wednesday evening, Twitter experienced its first significant outage under Elon Musk’s direction.

Musk tweeted: “Works for me” in response to the reports.

After Musk fired half the company’s employees, Twitter employees had expressed concerns about downtime.

The first significant outage to hit Twitter since Elon Musk gained control of the service occurred on Wednesday.

Starting at around 5 p.m. PT, approximately 10,000 users reported issues to Downdetector. Numerous nations across North America, Europe, and Asia experienced problems.

When several users who were not harmed by the reports discussed them, Musk said, “Works for me.”

The main platform affected by this was Twitter’s web browser, and some users were immediately logged out and presented with the following error message: “It’s not your fault if something went wrong, so don’t worry about it. Retrying now.”

According to The Wall Street Journal, the mobile app was unable to access Twitter Spaces.

Due to Musk’s removal of the feature that identifies the device from which a tweet was made, it was unclear when the Twitter CEO replied to the users whether he was tweeting from his phone or the company’s website.

When Downdetector reports returned to baseline levels after three hours, the outage appeared to be fixed.

Concerns about such an outage first surfaced when Musk fired over half of Twitter’s 7,500 employees not long after buying the business. According to Insider’s Kali Hays, Twitter had about 2,300 employees in November, a reduction of almost 70%.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the mobile app was unable to connect to Twitter Spaces.

After three hours, Downdetector reports had reached baseline levels, suggesting that the outage had been resolved.

Musk’s decision to terminate more than half of Twitter’s 7,500 staff shortly after purchasing the company raised initial worries about such an outage. Twitter had around 2,300 employees in November, a decline of about 70%
