Twitter and Tweetdeck are suffering outages affecting users in various parts of the world.
Twitter’s official support account tweeted that it had been experiencing problems at about 6 a.m. Wednesday, U.K. time (10 p.m. Tuesday in Los Angeles). “You might have had trouble Tweeting, getting notifications, or viewing DMs,” it said. “We’re currently working on a fix, and should be back to normal soon.”
The outage has reportedly hit users of the social networking site and the Twitter management dashboard TweetDeck in parts of Europe, the U.S. and Asia. An outage map from downdetector.com shows the U.K. and Western and Southern Europe particularly badly affected, as well as the West Coast of the U.S. and Japan.

The technical issue seemingly means some users are not able to see direct messages and are experiencing issues with posting images and video. Some users report being redirected to the main Twitter service when trying to access TweetDeck.
Before acknowledging the latest problem, Twitter support had said there was a problem displaying new follower counts on the platform. Earlier this year, Twitter users were unable to access the service for about an hour with an outage that hit both mobile and web platforms.
