Just another reason to switch to Truth Social….
Users on Twitter found themselves unable to check their Twitter accounts after the social media giant has a major web outage.
The outage lasted over an hour and made it impossible for users to log into their accounts.
As of right now, there’s no information on what caused the outages but it does come at a strange time considering Twitter has been flooded with thousands of inappropriate pictures, texts, and images of Hunter Biden.

The New York Post had more on the story:
Twitter came back online for most users on Thursday morning after a global outage that left users unable to log in or access the social media app.
DownDetector, a site that tracks web outage reports, noted a spike among Twitter users around 8 a.m. ET. The site said that Twitter’s app, website and server connection appeared to be affected by the problem.
Twitter users attempting to use the site were logged out of their accounts, with many encountering error messages instructing them to refresh the page. The outage lasted about an hour, with users noting they were able to log back in around 9 a.m. ET.
“Gave me the option to log out or refresh. tried to log out and it said twitter was over capacity,” one Twitter user wrote.
Despite the trouble experienced by users, Twitter’s status page still noted that all of its systems were “operational.” The hiccup’s cause is still unclear.

The Verge shared these details:
Twitter went down for around 40 minutes this morning, in a major outage for the social network. Issues started with the service at around 8:05AM ET, with many users reporting “over capacity” error messages, and even errors saying “this page is down.” The issues affected Twitter web, mobile, and even the company’s TweetDeck app.
Downdetector had thousands of reports of issues with Twitter, but Twitter’s own status page claimed “all systems operational.” While the main Twitter.com domain loaded, many users weren’t able to log into the service or access tweets. Twitter started to come back to life at around 8:40AM ET, with many able to tweet and access the service again.
This is the first major Twitter outage since a series of problems for the social network in February. Twitter was down twice in a week in February, with users unable to access the service in parts of the US due to a “technical bug that was preventing timelines from loading and Tweets from posting.”
