Twitter Inc said on Friday it had fixed a software glitch in its micro-blogging website that had disrupted services for several thousands of its users.
“We’ve fixed a technical bug that was preventing timelines from loading and Tweets from posting. Things should be back to normal now,” the company said in a tweet.
Earlier, Twitter had said on its status page https://api.twitterstat.us that it was facing an elevated number of application programming interface errors, a set of protocols for building and integrating application software.
Over 40,000 users had reported outage of the service on Down detector, a website which tracks outages by collating status reports from a number of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform.
Some users on Reddit had complained of being logged out of their Twitter account, while others said they could not send or retrieve tweets.
