LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Twitter appeared to be working again Thursday following an outage that affected different areas around the world.
The social media site was down for over an hour Thursday afternoon.
According to DownDetector.com, reports began to spike just after 2:30 p.m. and had risen to over 45,000 by 2:42 p.m.
Around 4:15 p.m., Twitter Support tweeted they were working to “get it back up and running for everyone.”
The team said they, “had some trouble with our internal systems and don’t have any evidence of a security breach or hack.”
Twitter has been down for many of you and we’re working to get it back up and running for everyone.
We had some trouble with our internal systems and don’t have any evidence of a security breach or hack.

Users reported the outage once the site was working. Some thought they may have been suspended.
Raise your hand if you also thought you got suspended 😭✋🏼 #TwitterDown
