Twitter users on Thursday found themselves unable to log onto the platform as the US social media giant experienced the second service outage in a little over one week.

Twitter has been undergoing some problems since 2:46 p.m. EDT and more users were alerted with a message saying “something is technically wrong” when they tried to log on, the Xinhua news agency reported.

“IS TWITTER DOWN OR IS IT JUST MINE,” asked Twitter user mica@kianscloudy in a tweet, which followed with replies from many users who responded with the same problems.
