Twitter faced a massive outage in Australia, the US and Europe on Thursday night.

Thousands of users said they couldn’t send tweets or even log in.

According to downdetector.co.uk, which monitors site outages, the outage reports skyrocketed around 9pm EST and did not surface for approximately one hour. The site appears to be down worldwide, with crashes reported in the UK, US and Europe.

In the site’s own status panel, the social network and all related services were erroneously marked as “running” for the duration of the downtime.

Trouble was another new turbulence for a firm embroiled in a buyout battle with Elon Musk.
