BREAKING: Twitter Reportedly ‘Down’ For Users Worldwide


Twitter is reportedly broken for most users worldwide.

It appears most Twitter users are unable to tweet right now.

Scheduled tweets allegedly still work at the moment.

Downdetector reported at 4:49 p.m. ET that Twitter was experiencing difficulties.

A huge spike in Twitter complaints was logged on Wednesday

The problem reportedly occurred after Twitter enabled 4,000-character limit tweets for Twitter Blue users.

The U.S. Sun reported:

Thousands of users have logged complaints about the app not working – hours after the character limit for tweets was extended to 4,000 for some users.

Reports of website and app failure flooded in to online outage tracker Down Detector on Wednesday.

The bulk of users reported problems with the Twitter website, although around a third of complaints were linked to the app.

It’s currently unclear what has caused the Twitter outage.

But the app appeared to stop working just hours after it began allowing Twitter Blue users to post 4,000-character tweets for the first time.

Many Twitter users reportedly received a message saying, “You are over the daily limit for sending Tweets,” when attempting to post on the site.

CNBC added:

Tweets also couldn’t be posted from mobile phones. A message pops up saying, “Tweet not sent” followed by, “We’re sorry we weren’t able to send your tweet. Would you like to retry or save this tweet in drafts?” Users also weren’t able to send or load direct messages.

Some users were able to tweet by scheduling their posts using the calendar icon at the bottom of the message box.

The Internet tracking service Downdetector showed that the number of users submitting Twitter problem reports skyrocketed starting around 4:30 PM ET.

Twitter hasn’t announced any update to its daily limits. It’s not clear if the change on Wednesday was intentional or if it’s a temporary glitch. The company didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to Twitter’s website, the company limits the number of tweets that people can send to 2,400 per day. The daily limit for direct messages is 500.

It appears that brands are still able to send tweets, though that could be through scheduling their messages as well.
