TWITTER Experiencing Widespread Technical Issues

THOUSANDS of Twitter users across the UK are experiencing technical problems.

Users of the social media platform began reporting problems at around 8pm GMT, with the most common issue being the inability to read or reply to comments.

Instead, many users are being greeted with the messages “Uh oh, an error was encountered”, “or “Cannot receive Tweets at this time. Please try again later.”

According to Down Detector, thousands of people have so far registered their frustration online.

Twitter is yet to provide an update, but such technical issues aren’t uncommon – with sites such as Instagram and Facebook frequently experiencing temporary problems.

So, if you’re wondering why you can’t read that irrelevant comment or toxic post – relax. Grab a cuppa, put down your phone, and enjoy the (albeit brief) return to the ‘real world’.
