Twitter appears to be down in some regions, with multiple users reporting the issue on other social networks such as Facebook.
While Twitter’s own Status page does not show any disruption to services, crowdsourced downtime reporting services like Down Detector and Down Right Now both indicate the disruption began around 3pm IST (9:30am GMT).
For us here in India, Twitter does not seem to be having any problems, though the official client Tweetdeck does intermittently fail to load images.
Down Detector’s Twitter Outage Map (seen above) shows most user reports about the outage are coming from Western Europe, and appear to be centred in London and Paris – or at least, southeast UK and northwest France.
Based on the location, it is possible the service disruption is intentional, dealing with Islamic State of use of Twitter and other social media.
