As per the details, the problem impacted desktop users more than the application. The impacting desktop users claimed that they were being logged out repeatedly. The desktop users said that upon refreshing the page they are taken to the signup page which shows a curated selection of tweets and options to sign in through Google or Apple or by creating a new account.
While most of the Twitter users were able to log in easily others had a tough time logging back in through any of the usual methods. The impacted users told that even after entering a code generator, the page only refreshes and returned them to the same Logged Out page once again. Downdetector’s spike graph shows that the problem was pretty widespread and it has impacted many users.
