New Delhi, Jul 14 (IANS): Micro-blogging platform Twitter suffered a mega outage on Thursday evening as several users across the world had error messages like “this page is down”.

While 65 percent were unable to log in to the Twitter website, 34 percent had issues with the app, according to outage monitoring website Downdetector.

Several users also faced “over capacity” error messages across Twitter web, mobile and the TweetDeck app.

“Twitter went down for a few minutes and you almost have a heart attack cos no matter you try to deny it, you really love this app,” posted on affected user.

“When Twitter is down, where do you even complain about it being down,” posted another.

According to some users, the service was resuming back to normal.

Most users reported they were not able to access Twitter on desktops (85 percent) and 8 percent on Android devices, according to Downdetector.

Twitter faced two mega outages in February as users were unable to post tweets for several minutes.
