Twitter at the moment is currently down for some users as of 02:30 am GMT. Personally, I was surprised when I tried accessing the platform a few minutes ago. But this might not be an issue to scare the hell out of you. Or even raise some eyes balls alarm for that matter. Remember a while back, apart from Twitter when Facebook and Instagram experienced a Hitch too?
Whenever a main Social Media Platform is down, there is more to the root for an ordinary user. Arguably, the word’s Main Social Media Platforms users affiliated to Facebook, WhatsApp & Instagram experienced the same a while back due to applications service unavailability.

Through Twitter, registered users can post, like, and retweet tweets, but unregistered users can only read them. Users access Twitter through its website interface, through Short Message Service (SMS) or its mobile-device application software (“app”). Twitter, Inc. is based in San Francisco, California, and has more than 25 offices around the world.
Why is Twitter Currently Down?
In the first place, Twitter current out is comparable to the previous outages on Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp. While all three platforms will remain stand-alone apps, at a much deeper level they will be linked too. So messages can travel between different services.
On one hand, most of the three social media platforms user heavily relies on the deliverance in terms of news and updates. On the other hand, the Social Media Platforms, especially Facebook provides its user with high-end news and networking media.
Finally, Twitter is an American online news and social networking service. On which users post and interact with messages known as “tweets”. Tweets were originally restricted to 140 characters, but on November 7, 2017, this limit was doubled to 280. Not to mention, for all languages except Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

Social Media Platforms general Outages
The outage of services by Facebook inflicted an effect on Instagram and WhatsApp platforms as well. Not only from the headquarters country but currently all over the world. As a matter of fact, the three social media platforms fans and followers from around the world had no other option than to revisit their Twitter accounts. Not to mention eloquently, up until now, the tweeps are showcasing their anger and distress.
Especially throwing stones and calling a war on such inconsistency and indefinite behavior from their masters. Not only are the followers unable to access the social media platforms web and applications, but also sending messages are in vain. Whereas those trying to access Facebook were met with a message saying; ” Facebook will be back soon.”
Twitter Bookmark Feature
It’s the world of social media and every day we get a new feature added. Some features are so huge that the entire world notices (Snapchat’s recent update) and some features are just so minute that they remain forever unnoticed. Very often it’s these unnoticed features that we use a lot without even realizing.
As of Feb 28th, 2018, Twitter announced a similar feature. Marking the day when this social media app launched a New Bookmarks feature. This feature will allow users to save tweets for later access.
The updated ‘share icon’ can be used for bookmarking and sharing tweets. According to the company this icon is supposed to make it easier for users to save things publicly or privately. Whatever suits them. Very often we come across things that we wish to save for later use. So we resort to screenshots and then there is a chance that the image will get lost in our gallery.
