One user was particularly relieved the outage was a global issue rather than an individual mishap.

They said: "I'm glad it's down – I thought it was something I said! Looked at my e-mails to check before reporting here!"

Another user confirmed the site was down in Birmingham as they commented: "Twitter's down in Birmingham, won't load anything and takes a year to send a tweet".

The theme of Twitter users being delighted that there was a global outage and they weren't personally blocked from the app seems to be a popular one as another user said: "At least I have not been shown the door by the Twitter gods".

Following Elon Musk's ending his bid to buy Twitter in early July as the billionaire alleged that the social media company failed to provide enough information regarding the amount of fake and spam accounts on the app, one user had an interesting theory on the latest outage.

"Elon bought Twitter to delete it, "they said.

According to Downdetector, 90% of the reports they've received complained about the website being down, 6% was about the server connection while just 3% was regarding the app.
