  • Elon Musk's X platform, formerly known as Twitter, experienced a widespread outage lasting over an hour. Users encountered issues with timeline refreshes on mobile apps, while the web version displayed a placeholder message welcoming users to X. The global internet tracking service, Netblocks, reported a "significant international outage," unrelated to country-level blocks or filtering. Access to timelines was restored around 1:35 AM ET, but the cause of the problem remains undisclosed.
  • During the outage, users could still post to the site, even though posts disappeared after refresh, and notifications for accounts with push notifications remained active. Notably, even with blanked timelines, discussions persisted, highlighting the impact despite the inability to view new posts. Accounts belonging to Elon Musk, Support, and X CEO Linda Yaccarino, along with the API Status page, did not provide useful information during the disruption.

Why it matters

This outage follows a recent incident where outgoing links were broken for several hours. The platform's PR account responded with a generic "Busy now, please check back later" message, leaving users without Premium service in the dark about status updates.
