According to downdetector, the problems started just after 3pm in some countries, with the United States, Japan and parts of Europe reporting down time.

Twitter users in the UAE on Tuesday were confronted with a bright blue screen and a message reading: Something is technically wrong. The micro-blogging site was also not working in Pakistan as of 7:15pm local time.

Twitter had then put out a response message on the outage. The micro-blogging site gained instant popularity with its monthly users peaking to as high as 150 million within the next five years. The Twitter app for mobile meanwhile is failing to "retrieve your tweets" as of this moment. "Thanks for noticing- We are going to fix it up and have things back to normal".

In the Down Detector website, which tracks services when they go offline, many users from Mumbai to NY were reporting outage.
