Aaaand we’re back, says Twitter after being down for several users
The social media site later said that services have now been restored after the brief disruption.
Twitter Inc's (TWTR.N) website was back up late on Wednesday after being down for multiple users, according to outage monitoring website Downdetector.
Twitter suffered an outage on Thursday with multiple users reporting issues while posting, searching and sharing content via the micro-blogging site.
Twitter did not specify what had caused the outage but acknowledged that profile tweets were not loading for some web users and that they worked on a fix.
"Tweets should now be visible on profiles, but other parts of Twitter for web may not be loading for you. We're continuing to work on getting things back to normal," the social media site said in a tweet.
In another tweet shared after nearly an hour, the company mentioned that the services are back and apologised for the "interruption".
According to outage monitoring website Downdetector, more than 6,000 user reports indicated issues with Twitter, about 93 per cent of those being related to its website.
Downdetector tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform.
The social media firm had faced a similar 'brief' outage in April this year.
Meanwhile, the government and Twitter have been at loggerheads for the last few months over various issues, including statements made by company officials about the freedom of speech in India.
The biggest flashpoint emerged when Twitter failed to fully comply with the new digital rules that came into force last month.
