Twitter suffers embarrassing outage amid Post censorship controversy

Twitter suffered a major crash on Thursday evening — telling users “something went wrong” when they attempted to open their feeds.

The crash comes a day after the social media giant took the unprecedented measure of shutting down The Post’s primary page while claiming, without evidence, bombshell reports about Hunter Biden’s emails were in violation of its “hacked materials” policy.

Users began reporting problems with the platform at around 5 p.m., with more than 57,000 complaints logged by 5:51 p.m., according to DownDetector, a website that tracks such issues.

DownDetector’s outage map showed glitches with Twitter being reported across the globe, though mostly concentrated in the US.

Twitter’s API status site said at around 5:56 p.m. that it was “currently investigating this issue.”

Tweets still couldn’t load or be sent on the platform as of around 6:20 p.m.

Twitter didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
