X, formally known as Twitter, is experiencing a global outage. The issues, which appeared around 9:30 a.m. ET, are affecting the app and website.

Other parts of the world, including the United Kingdom, China and some European countries, are also having problems with X.
About 49 percent of reported issues cite problems with the app, 41 percent with the website, and 10 percent with the server connection.
It is unknown what caused the outage.
Users have shared their frustrations on the site, noting that they cannot see posts and that ‘For You’ is not loading.

Users have shared their frustrations on the site, noting that they cannot see posts and that “For You” does not load.
The billionaire formally changed Twitter’s legal name to X Corp in April, but users discovered that X.com redirected them to Twitter.com, and the blue app with the iconic white bird changed to a white X against a black one over the summer .
The rebrand was not a fan favorite, leaving many users longing for their “beloved” Twitter with a logo designed to post thoughts based on “a little bird told me so.”
Users feel the aesthetic is “ugly,” the new logo “stinks,” and the change “seems pointless and ego-driven.”
Some users hated the rebranding so much that a Change.org petition was started to “bring back Twitter’s bluebird logo.”
One user suggested Musk change the name to ‘Twitter – Powered by X’ to make all parties happy.
Zach Dioneda, vice president of brand marketing at financial technology company Public.com, told the BBC that people can take rebranding personally.
“There will be people who will feel this is an affront to them as loyal users,” he said. “People don’t love change.”
Maggie Sause, director of marketing strategies at New York-based branding agency Red Antler, said people tend to become emotionally invested in brands.
“It’s almost as if we’re saying, ‘How dare you make this decision without consulting me?’ “It can almost seem like an act of betrayal,” he said.
