(Pocket-lint) – Social network Twitter went down for a while on Thursday.
Users reported the service not loading in a web browser, and the Down Detector site saw a massive spike in complaints.
It’s not yet clear why Twitter crashed, but people who were already logged in received an error message when they tried to load new tweets, while those who opened the page were sent back to the screen connection.
The same thing happened on mobile, with the Twitter app simply stating that “tweets are not loading at this time”.
It’s video game week in association with Nvidia GeForce RTX.

It became fully operational again 20 minutes later, we believe. However, no explanation has been given so far on this problem.
Twitter has been in the news recently as Elon Musk pulled out of his purchase of the social media giant. The board then filed a lawsuit against his removal.
Originally, Tesla founder Elon Musk launched a hostile takeover bid for the service. The board eventually agreed to a $44 billion buyout. He, however, withdrew, claiming that Twitter had withheld information about the number of fake accounts and spam accounts among its members. This assertion is strongly denied by the board of directors itself.
Today, with this breakdown occurring by coincidence, the plot thickens.
