Twitter acknowledged that it's services were not function early on Wednesday morning.

Fear not, it'’s not just you! Monitoring website Outage.report revealed that it is receiving over 1000 reports every 20 minutes of the social media site being down.

The company confirmed the issue on their twitter feed...

"We've been experiencing outages across Twitter and TweetDeck. You might have had trouble Tweeting, getting notifications, or viewing DMs. We're currently working on a fix, and should be back to normal soon," they tweeted just after 6am SAST.

The issue includes Tweetdeck, which just redirects any attempted logins to Twitter's website. Some functions like browsing are working, but many report they cannot send tweets or direct messages.

Hang in there folks, surely we'll be able to get out thumbs working shortly...
