Twitter is experiencing an outage that prevents users from seeing their usual stream of posts. The Dutch site allestoringen.nl, among others, shows a peak in the number of reports of problems with the social medium.
Its international version, downdetector.com, registered more than 4,000 reports of a malfunction on Wednesday morning.
Issues on Twitter’s homepage include the feed, which displays posts from followed accounts in chronological order. For some users, this is just a welcome message and an invitation to view suggestions for other accounts.
The technical problems follow a few days after a new round of layoffs at Twitter, which was taken over by entrepreneur Elon Musk last year. Shortly after the $44 billion purchase, Musk, who also became CEO of the company, laid off roughly half of all staff.
Last weekend he fired another fifty people, American media reported. This would include technical support and product development employees.
