Twitter Restores Services After Global Outage, Assures 'no Evidence Of Hack Or Breach'

Microblogging platform Twitter has announced “we’re all clear” after it experienced global outage and users complained that they were unable to use the website.


Twitter has announced “we’re all clear” after it experienced a worldwide outage and users complained that they were unable to use the platform. Several hours after Jack Dorsey’s Twitter first acknowledged that it has been “down for many” due to some trouble with the company’s “internal systems”, Twitter Support posted an update on October 16 that it should now be working “as expected” for everyone. 

The platform also assured that there was not “any evidence of a security breach or hack.” It also said in a statement that “The outage was caused by a system change initiated earlier then planned, affecting most of our servers. We’re working hard to bring Twitter back to normal and expect things to be fully resolved in 1-2 hours.”
