Major Outage Hits Social Media Platform Owned by Dogecoin Enthusiast Musk
Twitter is currently experiencing technical difficulties, with images and links failing to load for users. Elon Musk, who owns the social media giant, has not commented on the situation. Twitter’s API error message suggests that the problem could have been caused by a shutdown of the company’s API. CNBC contributor Alex Kantrowitz reported that links out of Twitter are also broken. The widespread outage prompted Twitter to release a statement admitting that some parts of the platform may not be functioning as expected, and the company attributed the issue to an internal change that had unintended consequences. The outage has left users confused and frustrated, with some speculating that Twitter is “falling apart at the seams.” Twitter has not provided a timeline for when the issue will be resolved.
