Thousands of people around the world have reported that Twitter is down, with users slamming the platform.

Thousands of users around the world are experiencing issues with TWITTER.

The website and app are having issues this evening, according to social media users.

Others have reported having trouble logging into their accounts.

Users in the United States, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand are among those who have been impacted.

Many people claim that their tweets aren’t refreshing or that they’re being kicked out of their accounts and forced to re-log in.

It’s unclear what caused the outage or when all users will be able to use the social media platform again.

The massive increase in users, however, would overwhelm Twitter within two hours.

Hundreds of users reported issues every minute as the site’s features broke down.

By the end of the day, Twitter’s stock had dropped 5.9%, outperforming Facebook’s 4.9 percent drop.

In other news, Twitter announced on Friday that some accounts will get a new search button that will allow users to quickly scan through a specific person’s past tweets.

In October, a small number of users noticed the button, which is located next to the three dots in the top right corner.

According to XDA Developers, it will be rolled out more widely on the iOS Twitter app.

It’s the latest in a long line of new features added to Twitter’s platform in recent months, many of which have to do with privacy.
