TwitterVerse Stops Spinning
Twitter appeared to suffer a widespread outage Thursday afternoon, making it the latest social media site to have a major disruption in recent months, according to The Hill.
According to the website Down Detector, users in many major cities were reporting trouble accessing Twitter.
After an hour, the site appeared to work again for many people. The company attributed the disruption to an "internal configuration change."
"The outage was due to an internal configuration change, which we're now fixing," Twitter said on its system status page. "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."
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey apologized for the outage in a tweet.
