New York: Micro-blogging site Twitter crashed for its users all over the world on Tuesday due to an internal code change, a media report said.
Twitter experienced an issue "related to an internal code change" that caused its web and mobile apps to go down for almost eight hours. In other words, someone wrote some bad code that crashed things for a while, recode.net reported on Tuesday.
The incident is yet another tough pill to swallow for Twitter investors. Twitter is already fighting to prove that its struggling stock price and user growth issues are not long-term concerns.
Recently, a Florida-based woman filed a lawsuit against Twitter, accusing the firm of supporting the global spread of Islamic State (IS) by enabling its followers to recruit on its social media platform.
