Twitter was offline for about an hour on Thursday morning, but came back online around 9am ET. It looks like it’s mostly back online, but Twitter has said it’s still working on getting it up and running again for everyone.

Crash tracking site Downdetector logged over 54,000 bug reports on both the website and app shortly after 8am ET.

According to Downdetector, which logs user-reported issues, crash reports have come in from all over the US, especially major cities like New York and Los Angeles. It also declined in the UK, Mexico, Brazil and Italy. Reuters.

The failure occurred due to the fact that the company sued Elon Musk, who is trying to refuse to buy Twitter.

Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
