Kenyans on X (formerly Twitter) are reporting broad problems accessing the service Thursday morning across as from 0900HRS.
Users cannot post, refresh page, or load new posts.
Users in other parts of the world, in the U.S. and parts of Europe are also reporting the same.
Twitter has not yet issued a notice, at least by the time of going to press.
According to DownDetector.com, reports of problems with Twitter began to spike just after 8:11 a.m, and soared to 76,940 by 8:42 a.m.
This outage might not be the first one today, a Twitter user told Ekoroi.com that he noticed something strange with the social networking app earlier in the night.
‘I noticed that Twitter was behaving abnormally a few minutes past 8 am, East African Time’, a Kenyan on X (KoX) said.
Some users in US believe that the company is deliberately being slowed by the Federal Govt to cool down the political temperatures over the exposé of the son of President candidate Joe Biden, Hunter, and the backlash over the Supreme Court’s decision to ban Donald Trump from the contest in Colorado.
Photos of Hunter Biden in compromising situations leaked online.
This has been an ongoing issue for nearly 4 years and has gained new public interest after Hunter gave a press conference.
