Sparodic shutdown continued for six hours, making this one of the worst outages for Twitter in its 10- year history. Twitter said the widespread outages were caused by a glitch in a software update that affected the social network on computers and phones.

Users were met with the message: “Something is technically wrong”

In a statement Twitter said it had resolved the outages:The intermittent issue affecting some users between 00:40 to 06:50 PST has now been resolved. The issue was related to an internal code change. We reverted the change, which fixed the issue. Thank you for your patience.”

Overnight the hashtag #twitterdown was trending globally, which confused many people in Australia who were able to access Twitter.
