How can I check if Twitter is down?
If you want to verify that your Twitter account is operational, log in to it.
If the message, “This page is down. I scream… You scream… We all scream… for us to fix this page. We’ll stop making jokes and get things up and running soon,” appears, then the site is down for you.
However, users who aren’t reporting issues with Twitter have access to the site and can still use it, despite the increase in outages.
