Twitter said late on Friday that it was working on fixing an access issue after thousands of users reported problems with the platform.
“Tweets may not be loading for some of you. We’re working on fixing a problem and you’ll be back on the timeline soon,” the company said in a tweet. Twitter grants academics full access to public data, but not for suspended accounts Around 40,000 users reported issues with the social media platform Friday, according to outage monitoring website Downdetector.com. Downdetector tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform. The outage could have affected a larger number of users. Last month as many as 18,000 users were facing issues with the micro-blogging site, according to Downdetector, and several users took to Twitter to complain about the outage, using the hashtag “#twitterdown”.
