Twitter down: Company says ‘working on fixing a problem’

Twitter Inc said late on Friday that it was working on fixing an access issue after thousands of users reported problems with the platform.

“Tweets may not be loading for some of you. We’re working on fixing a problem and you’ll be back on the timeline soon,” the company said in a tweet.

Around 40,000 users reported issues with the social media platform Friday, according to outage monitoring website Downdetector.com.
