Twitter users were today experiencing outages as technical difficulties hit the network in the build-up to Prince Philip’s funeral.
The social media platform started going down for some people from 1 am UK time and issues have been lingering all day.
In a statement, Twitter Support said that tweets might not be loading for some people and that they were working on fixing the problem and that people would get back on the timeline shortly.
The issues were also affecting people in Mexico, South America, South Africa and the Philippines, and it follows a turbulent start to the year in which the company permanently barred then US president Donal Trump’s account and expanded its use of warning labels to target misleading posts about coronavirus vaccines.
And at least some poor unfortunate souls have been saved from the relentless bullying for a while at least.
