Twitter Outage: Users Struggle With Elon Musk’s App – What’s Going On?

Twitter users experienced considerable disruptions this Saturday, July 1st – and it couldn’t have come at a worse time for CEO Elon Musk, as this is the second major outage since his tenure began.

Reports of Twitter outages began appearing around 07:30 ET, prompting thousands to flock to sites like iMore and DownDetector to get answers. The disruption comes at an inconvenient time, given the platform’s lofty ambitions and user base.

Twitter users are in uproar, as they collectively take to the platform to voice their grievances against its newfound stability issues. #RateLimitExceeded is trending among those who manage to access the app, and many have been met with a message informing them that they have exceeded their rate limit and must wait before continuing.

Disturbingly, 45% of complaints are coming from the website version, 38% from the app, and 17% from the feed. Many users have resorted to tweeting at or about Elon Musk to express their dissatisfaction over Twitter’s recent instability, some even going so far as to call him out for his role in it.

“Every aspect of Twitter has gotten considerably worse since Elon Musk took over,” one user remarked. “From constant bots in DMs and comments to regular app collapses. And yet, there are still people who worship him – it is impossible to run a social media platform worse than this.”

It remains to be seen how much longer Twitter users will have to suffer these disruptions before matters up elevated.

Users of the popular social media platform, Twitter, have been voicing their discontent with its new owner, tech mogul Elon Musk, following the latest major outage on the first day of July. This is the third outage due to changes made since Musk’s acquisition of the company in October 2022.

One user even asked Musk if he cared about the app anymore. The outages follow a round of significant layoffs under Musk’s watch. This has left many users wondering how long this downward trend will continue and what can be done to put an end to these issues. With tensions rising between customers and ownership, all eyes are now on Elon Musk to see if he can get things back up and running for good.
