For almost an hour Friday morning, the microblogging website Twitter was unavailable in India. Throughout this period, users had trouble connecting to Twitter. Based on DownDetector, roughly 453 users reported that Twitter was inaccessible. Twitter’s operations, on the other hand, have now been resumed. Users in Canada and parts of the United States, in addition to India, had also difficulty reaching the microblogging site.
Twitter was unreachable in India between 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Saturday, according to data published on DownDetector. Users of the Twitter website were the ones who were most affected by the outage, users of the iPhone, iPad, or Android apps, on the other hand, had fewer issues logging into the platform. Apart from that Twitter’s operations were also suspended in April. 40,000 people’s Twitter accounts were disrupted throughout that period. However, Twitter’s services were restored within a short period of time.
Moreover, Twitter has also confirmed in a post that “We have resolved the issue on the platform”. Twitter is making every effort to avoid outages that disrupt its services repeatedly in order to give its users a better experience than before. Apart from that, Twitter is making other efforts as well to attract more users to its platform, as evidenced by the latest decision of Twitter to soon add a new function to its platform that will benefit its users.
Users will be allowed to view YouTube videos directly on their timeline with this functionality. This new function, according to the business, would make it simpler for users to stream movies. Twitter is presently testing its new functionality in the United States, Japan, Canada, and Saudi Arabia. This feature will simply be accessible to iOS users. Although, it is predicted that Android users will also soon be able to use the feature.
As per the statement of Twitter spokesman, “the new function will be examined for four weeks prior a decision is made on whether or not it will be launched”. Apart from that, no information has been discovered yet.
