84% of reports are from users attempting to log into the Twitter website – just 11% of reported failures are attributed to the app.

Outages were reported on the service monitor Down Detector and it’s currently unclear what is causing the problems.

It could be Twitter servers or it could be the devices people are using to access the site

Meanwhile, Elon Musk’s acquisition deal is on ice as he haggles with Twitter executives over the number of bots on the platform.

Musk, 50, said the deal “cannot move forward” unless the social media giant can prove that less than 5% of users are bot accounts.

Despite sparring with Twitter’s current CEO Parag Agrawal, the Tesla CEO said he is “still committed to the acquisition.”

The Twitter board reportedly plans to hold him to the deal.
