Twitter was hit by a global outage that left thousands frustrated just as the work week had begun.

The crash affected the website, as well as Twitter’s iPhone and Android apps.

DownDetector revealed that the social media platform crashed around 10:30 a.m.ET and hit the US, UK, China, and other parts of the world.

However, the outage in the US only seemed to plague users along the East Coast and parts of the Midwest.

Twitter is just one of many social media platforms that have crashed in the past two weeks – Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp just crashed two weeks ago.

But the Twitter outage is arguably one of the most frustrating, as it happened Monday morning when many Americans were just starting their workday.

Boston, New York, Washington, Atlanta, and Dallas were among the major cities shown in red on DownDetector’s outage map.

And after 30 minutes of the initial report, DownDetector showed that more than 16,000 Americans had been affected by the crash.

Twitter has yet to resolve the malfunction.

Some users were able to post on the social media platform, which allowed them to share their frustrations about the crash with the world.

One Twitter user didn’t seem surprised by the issues, saying the site has random crashes every week.

However, most users posted a message on the site to see if anyone else was having problems.

All of Facebook’s apps went offline for over an hour on March 19.

Users visiting Instagram online were presented with a simple error message saying ‘5xx Server Error’, with no other information provided.

Some Facebook users were able to log into the app, although 63 percent of the reports on DownDetector.com suggested it had been a ‘total blackout’.

The triple outage lasted about an hour, but Instagram and Facebook addressed the recent crash.

And then, on March 26, Instagram went down again.

The social media app crashed around 3 p.m. ET, with many users reporting issues with their news feed and problems logging into accounts.

The outage hit a number of major US, including New York, Seattle, and San Francisco, along with others around the world, such as the UK, China, and Australia.

However, Twitter rarely seems to have any problems – except during an October 15 event that derailed more than 50,000 accounts.

The social media giant quickly went down for several hours in front of thousands of users around the world, preventing them from sharing tweets, seeing notifications, or refreshing the news feed.

More than 50,000 users worldwide reported problems shortly after 5pm. ET on Down Detector, which monitors websites and online services.

At 11:30 p.m., Twitter announced that the problem had been resolved and that it was ‘completely clear’ now that all systems were ‘operational’ again.
