Earlier today, the social media platform encountered problems causing most of its users unable to tweet for a couple of hours.
However, in their recent update, it seems that their systems are back to normal, and they said that they would resolve the issue in a couple of hours. This isn’t the first time that Twitter experienced this kind of problem.
They also faced a security breach involving cryptocurrency back in July, where a group of hackers was able to access accounts of well-known personalities such as Bill Gates and Elon Musk.
Investigating the issue e further, we observe that the leading cause of the downtime was because of their API.
As of this writing, they have restored most of their systems particularly their v2 endpoints which they claimed to have fully recovered.
However, they are still investigating their Historical PowerTrack, Enterprise Search, Replay API, Compliance Firehose, Standard v1.1 sample, and filtered streams as posted on their Twitter API status page.
Last October 14, a news story from The New York Post popped out this week about Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, exchanging emails with a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm.
Later on, the two social media giants had an editorial decision to limit the distribution of the said article as it had the potential to be fake news.
Andy Stone, a spokesperson for Facebook, tweeted that the story is going to be fact-checked by their partners.
