internal systems change

On Tuesday, microblogging platform, Twitter underwent a partial outage globally. Upon investigating the matter, the company confirmed that an “internal systems change” was to blame for the partial outage. Moreover, the social network confirmed that some were having problems accessing the social network and that it was working to fix the issue. Twitter has since rolled back the internal systems change.


Twitter Rolled Back its Internal Systems Changes Due to the Partial Outage Caused By it


Reports from third-party web monitoring service Downdetector indicated that problems began due to the partial outage around 2 p.m. EDT. Users reported problems with both the app and web versions of the platform, with some saying they were being logged out or were unable to load their home feed. “We fixed it,” the company said in a tweet. “We made an internal systems change that didn’t go as planned and have rolled it back. Twitter should now be loading as expected. Sorry about that!” 


Furthermore, according to Downdetector, more than 33,000 users had reported an outage of the service, which appeared to have started shortly after 2 pm. Almost half the complaints were about the app, and 45 percent about the website version of the microblogging platform. 


Twitter Also Suffered a Mega Outage Last Month 


Last month, the platform suffered a mega outage as several users worldwide had error messages like “this page is down”. While 65 percent of the users were unable to log in to the Twitter website, 34 percent had issues with the app. Several users also faced “over capacity” error messages across Twitter web, mobile, and the TweetDeck app.


Twitter’s latest technical problems come amid its legal fight with Elon Musk. On July 12, Twitter filed a lawsuit against Musk, seeking to force the world’s richest individual to consummate his $44 billion acquisition deal for the company.
