"Web site comes up, but the page is blank," said another user on Downdetector's website.

A third user shared: "Twitter is working but it's either extremely slow or I have to reload multiple times to get it to 'take'."

When else has Twitter been down?

How can I check if Twitter is down?

Folks who want to check if their Twitter account is fully operating can try to log into their accounts.

If the message, "This page is down. I scream… You scream… We all scream… for us to fix this page. We'll stop making jokes and get things up and running soon," appears, then the site is down for you.

However, despite an uptick in outages, some users are not reporting any issues with Twitter and have full access to the site.
