Twitter is down for many in Australia, users say • Zoo House News

Twitter users in Australia and New Zealand have been having trouble accessing the service for over 12 hours, they say, as Elon Musk’s social network continues to struggle with reliability issues amid cost-cutting measures.

According to user tweets and DownDetector (Australia and New Zealand), a web monitoring tool that tracks reliability issues, the outage began around 2 p.m. Pacific Time on Tuesday.

The bug, which causes tweets not to load for users and very laggy service for others, seems to only affect those in Australia and New Zealand.

DownDetector’s global website shows very few complaints. What caused the outage is unclear.

Many users say that they can access the service after using a VPN app. Although some users are reporting sporadic improvements to the Twitter service, complaints are still pouring in.

.@twitter is an absolute shambles today, isn’t it? Operationally pathetic. I suspect owner & current CEO @elonmusk pulled one too many server plugs, fired too many key frontline workers? Consistency, reliability are important? #Musk just clueless and propagandist. #TwitterDown

This website is dying such a slow and painful death today. Someone put it out of its misery. #twitterdown

Twitter has been down in Australia for 12 hours now and I’m pretty sure @elonmusk has no idea there is a world outside of the US so I assume it will never be fixed. I’m tweeting from a VPN to ask you to click here for 60fps Bloodborne:

Twitter suffered a global outage last week after Musk said he’d introduced “significant backend server architecture changes” and that it should make Twitter feel “faster.”

In late October, Musk acquired Twitter for $44 billion. He has attempted to slash Twitter’s expenses by eliminating thousands of employees, many of whom worked to maintain the service’s infrastructure. Musk has also focused on making the Twitter experience faster for users by removing bloat code from the service.
