Twitter Down: Twitter users face outage on the day company set to announce job cuts


Twitter went down early on Friday. Several users reported problems with the microblogging site. Users complained that they were unable to access their feeds. Some users were not able to log into the website. A popup that reads “Something went wrong, but don’t worry – try again” appears when the feed page first loads. “I’m unable to access Twitter and getting an error prompt…Something went wrong, but don’t fret — let’s give it another shot. Try again,” a social media user wrote. The outage reportedly started around 3 am and saw a relatively big spike around 7 am.
The outage occurred on the same day when Twitter is set to announce job cuts, when reports suggest mass layoffs. Twitter had 7500 employees approximately when Elon Musk took over on October 27. As per a Slack message, more than half of this number of employees may be asked to go. “According to a report, employees took note of a Slack message that suggested “3,738 people” could be laid off and that changes could still be made to the list.
He has also started mass layoffs today. As per an unsigned internal memo seen by The Verge, Twitter employees were notified in the email that the layoffs were set to begin. Employees will receive an email by 9am PST (9:30pm IST) on November 4 confirming whether they have been laid off or not, according to the internal memo, which also states that employee badge access to Twitter’s offices will be shut off “temporarily.”
“We acknowledge this is an incredibly challenging experience to go through, whether or not you are impacted,” the memo read. “Thank you for continuing to adhere to Twitter policies that prohibit you from discussing confidential company information on social media, with the press or elsewhere,” it added.
