Twitter Lets Users Remove Followers Without Blocking

Twitter was down for thousands of users around the globe on Monday, before the company fixed the issues about an hour later.

Problems with Twitter’s website, app and logging onto both platforms were apparent by around 12.50pm ET on Monday.

A spike in issues was seen just after 12.30pm on DownDetector, which monitors online outages.

More than 3,000 American users reported issues by 12.52pm and simultaneously, about 1,800 British users reported problems, according to DownDetector.

Users in New Zealand and other countries were also reportedly affected.

Many Twitter users said their tweets were not refreshing. In addition, users said they were kicked off and forced to try logging back in.

It was not immediately clear what caused the crash or about how many total users were affected.

The issues appeared to be fixed by around 1.30pm ET, according to the Daily Mail.

The last time that Twitter crashed was more than a month ago, on October 4.

Twitter’s latest crash came just days after its announcement on Friday that it is rolling out a search button on some accounts that lets users more easily look for past tweets. The button on the top right corner by the 3-dot menu began showing up in some users’ accounts last month, and has since been more widely added, according to XDA Developers.

In October, Twitter finished launching a feature on its website that allows users to remove followers without blocking them, and prevents them from knowing they were dropped. The user would also stop seeing the removed person’s future posts.

Social media platforms owned by Meta including Facebook, WhatsApp and Messenger have also recently crashed. Those three last went down on November 3, impacting thousands of users worldwide for several hours. Facebook and Instagram users had issues on the apps but could use the websites, while Messenger users said it was down on both platform.
