Is Twitter Down?

Is Twitter.com down or malfunctioning?

The site has a huge amount of down reports on downdetector.com, mostly focused in Japan and the East coast of the U.S.

At the time of publication, Twitter had 523 down reports on downdetector.com, but the number is growing rapidly. Ten minutes after the original publication, the number of reports grew to over 1,000.

The number of reports at Downdetector is growing rapidly. How long will Twitter be down this time? Is this another DDoS attack? (Downdetector)

Here’s a map of the outages so far:

The site was doing fine until around midnight EST, according to downdetector.com. Apparently, the last time Twitter had problems was October 26 — not too long ago, but the site was likely affected by the DDoS attacks in October.

  1. Santa Fe, New Mexico, Twitter down for me as of 11:16 PM Mountain time. All other sites working fine, no difficulty connecting. It’s solely Twitter.

  2. It’s down because #DNCLeak2 is trending and it exposes that Hillary killed Vincent Foster and Ron Brown. I think I got those names right. So the government shut it down. They don’t want the ppl to know.

  3. WIKILEAKS DOWN!! TWITTER DOWN!!! THEY ARE CENSORING US!! THE CLINTONS KILLED VINCE FOSTER, WORKED WITH SUPER PACS ILLEGALLY, GAVE QUESTIONS TO CNN PRIOR TO CRUZ, SANDERS, AND TRUMP INTERVIEWS!!! STOP THE CORRUPTION!!! VOTE TRUMP!!!!!

      It’s called a DDOS you retard.

  4. Can Hillary really have this much power? I’m questioning everything. Lifelong democrat here who was excited about a woman president but not a crazy, evil, satanic, greedy, murderous nut like a Hillary. I think I am going to vote Trump.

  5. Yes, Twitter is down. I was unable to view live stream of Trump’s final campaign stop in VA. Had to view it on FB which was also having connectivity issues. Twitter still down at nearly 11:30pm AZtime.

  6. Twitter has been going in and out after the Wikileaks DNCLeak2 release. When you get Twitter back do a search on….. #Stratfor
