Millions Affected As Twitter Crashes

Twitter is down.

Twitter is down for all users, with millions being affected by the issue.

It appears that the site is experiencing issues as of the afternoon of 14 July, with no users of the site able to access any tweets.

An error message of "Something went wrong. Try reloading," is all that users see across the site when they attempt to load up their 'Home', 'Explore', 'Notifications', 'Messages', 'Bookmarks', 'Lists' and 'Profile' pages on the social media platform.

Meanwhile, on the mobile app, an error message of: "Cannot retrieve Tweets at this time. Please try again later," is what users see when they try to refresh the page.

Twitter is down for all users.

A member of Tyla has verified that the site is indeed still not working.

It is unclear when the site will be back up and running.

Tyla has contacted a representative of Twitter for a comment on the matter.

More to follow.

In an update to the story, it appears that the site is back up and running.

However, the platform is still slow-to-load for some users.

Elsewhere on the site, Elon Musk has revealed his free-speech plan to Twitter employees on a company call on Thursday (June 16).

It was the first time that the Tesla billionaire had addressed the social media platforms employees since agreeing to buy the company for $44 billion (AU$62bn) in April. 

‘Free speech’ has been a major component of Musk’s takeover of the company, but what that exactly means to the owner of Twitter has been up for debate.

Following the announcement of his Twitter takeover, Musk released a statement in which he said: "Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated.”
