X social media platform has returned following a worldwide outage

Around 77,000 U.S. users of the social media network X, formerly known as Twitter, experienced problems during the peak of the outage.

Around 77,000 U.S. users of the social media network X, formerly known as Twitter, experienced problems during the peak of the outage, which was resolved early on Thursday.

Users of X and X Pro, formerly known as TweetDeck, reported difficulties accessing the service from Canada, the United Kingdom, France, and other countries.

According to Downdetector data, more than 7,000 customers in Canada and Britain encountered problems with the platform.

By compiling status reports from multiple sources, including users, Downdetector keeps track of outages.

The outage started a little after 12 a.m. ET (0500 GMT), and emails sent to X’s communications and support departments were returned with no information.

Users of Elon Musk’s billionaire-owned platform X were unable to access posts and were instead greeted with the phrase “Welcome to X!” Users of X Pro saw a notification that read, “Waiting for posts.”

After Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of the social media network, there was instability and uncertainty, which resulted in the layoffs of many engineers who were in charge of preventing and repairing service disruptions.

People discussed the outage on rival Meta’s (META.O) app, Threads, reporting issues reading posts, replies, and profiles on X.
