Twitter Crashes As Trump Hosts Anti-Twitter Summit

CNET reports:

Twitter’s desktop site and its mobile app went offline on Thursday morning, with an error message reading that “something is technically wrong.” The phrase greeted users as they went to tweet or view other users’ tweets.

“We are currently investigating issues people are having accessing Twitter,” a company spokesperson told TheWrap. The Twitter rep added the company will keep users updated here. No timetable for the site and app’s return was provided.

Twitter’s outage also comes at the same time President Trump is hosting a social media summit at the White House. President Trump tweeted on Thursday morning that a key topic at the summit would be the “tremendous dishonesty” of some of Silicon Valley’s biggest companies.
