Twitter crashes for thousands of Britons according to a website that monitors social media outages.
Downdetector recorded a peak of 1,344 breaks at 6:32 pm on Wednesday and continued to rise before 7:00 pm.
An incident is reported by Downdetector only when the number of problem reports is much higher than the usual volume for that time of day.
Despite the problems, social media users were still able to tweet their confusion that Twitter was not fully working for them.
Someone tweeted at 6:55pm: “My Twitter has a bug so bad that I think it’s about to crash.”
Dozens have gone to the microblogging site to simply ask the question: “Is Twitter down?”
