Twitter says service is back up and running after users across the world reported an outage on Thursday.
The website downdetector.ca showed users began reporting issues just before 8 a.m. ET on Thursday.
There were at least 6,500 reports of an outage from Canada, with more than 54,000 reports of issues on the site in the United States. Users in other countries, including the United Kingdom, Mexico, Brazil and Italy, also reported Twitter not working.
The social media giant posted a note on its support account acknowledging the issues at 9:10 a.m. and said it was working on a fix.
The company said in an update more than three hours later that it had fixed the issues, citing trouble with its “internal systems” and apologizing for the outage.
Downdetector identified roughly 50 outage reports remaining in Canada as of 12:30 p.m.

Twitter in February suffered an outage that disrupted services for several thousands of users. Later, the micro-blogging website said it fixed a software glitch.
The outage comes days after Twitter sued Tesla Inc. chief executive Elon Musk for violating his US$44-billion deal to buy the company and asked a Delaware court to order the world’s richest person to complete the merger at the agreed $54.20 per Twitter share.
