Twitter Inc says the social media website and its dashboard management platform TweetDeck have been hit with an outage, with thousands of global users left in the dark.

“You might have had trouble Tweeting, getting notifications, or viewing DMs. We’re currently working on a fix, and should be back to normal soon”, the company said in a tweet, which did not give further details.

Outage monitoring website Outage.report received more than 4000 reports of the incident globally, including Japan, Canada and India.

A Twitter representative had earlier told Reuters that the company was investigating issues with TweetDeck, which is used by reporters and other content creators for monitoring tweets from multiple Twitter accounts.

Log-in attempts by users of TweetDeck seemed to be redirecting users to Twitter’s website.
