Twitter and TweetDeck Down due to Global Outage
Previously, Twitter has reported a service outage. In addition, the blackout drew more than a thousand reports of users being incapable of posting, viewing messages, or receiving notifications.
The social media platform didn’t give or take user accounts that were affected by the outage. Moreover, resolving the blackout was not over until 8 a.m. yesterday.
Twitter stated the outage also affected TweetDeck.
In a statement on Twitter, the firm stated, “We’ve been experiencing outages across Twitter and TweetDeck.”
The company also added, “You might have had trouble tweeting, getting notifications or viewing direct messages. We’re currently working on a fix and should be back to normal soon.”
Surveys and certain types of media aren’t showing, but some users were able to tweet they were undergoing problems.
The outage seemed to affect users in Asia and Europe, in particular.
On the other hand, by 8 a.m., the report figure was down to 75.
Outage with Over 1,100 Affected Individuals
In a news report, Downdetector indicated that the disruption spiked at around 2 a.m. with more than 1,100 affected individuals.
The previously reported significant outage of Twitter was way back in July. It has lasted for about an hour due to what the firm said was an “internal configuration change.”
In other news, Twitter has officially introduced a Direct Messages (DMs) filter. This is to deal with offensive content, and also spam which could be sent by people that you don’t follow.
The feature has spent several months in testing. Now, it is also rolling out for iOS, Android, and Twitter’s web version.
Redirection of inappropriate DMs from people you don’t follow will be on a new folder that you can take to dip into or disregard completely.
To take a look, tap on the DM button. Moreover, you will see “message requests” near the top of the display.
Twitter made it with a note stating, “This is where you see messages from people you don’t follow. They won’t know you’ve seen the request until you accept it.”
