Twitter is down. Outage appears worldwide  1 Week ago

Source:   USA Today  

Twitter is starting to come back after experiencing an outage Thursday that knocked out the service across websites and phones. The disruption appears to extend beyond the U.S. to at least parts of Europe as well as in Japan and other parts of Asia.

Twitter said the outage was due to an "internal configuration change." " Some people may be able to access Twitter again and we're working to make sure Twitter is available to everyone as quickly as possible."

The update came an hour after the status page indicated the social media platform was having issues.

After getting the "nothing to see here" screen on their phones, many are starting to respond with GIFs of relief using the hashtag #TwitterDown. 

The Down Detector outage reporting site says the outage began at 2:46PM ET time; the number of reports at the site has grown to around 70,000. 

Though Twitter itself was down, people went elsewhere on social media to weigh in. At Down Detector, a user iDisOrder wrote, "REMAIN CALM ~ PUT DOWN YOUR DEVICES AND INTERACT WITH YOUR NEIGHBOR!"
