In recent months, the social media platform owned by Elon Musk has been plagued by numerous technical issues. In February, Twitter users were temporarily unable to share tweets, send direct messages, or use Tweetdeck.
Meanwhile, the microblogging website experienced a brief period of broken links and images in March. Currently, a new issue affects users. A recent flaw also allowed some users to temporarily regain their Verified status by editing their bios.
According to a report by TechCrunch, multiple Twitter users were unexpectedly logged out and were unable to enter back in. A number of users reported the issue on Twitter prior to the site re-admitting some users who had been banned.
How this defect impacted users
According to the report, the majority of Twitter desktop users encountered this issue. Some users have also reported being repeatedly signed out. The issue occurred when Twitter users were perusing the website.
After the page was refreshed, the Logged Out user was redirected to the default website. Users can view a curated inventory of tweets on this page. The page also provides the option for users to sign in via Google, Apple, or by creating a new account. In addition, a number of users who access Twitter via the app reported that they were unable to sign in using any of the standard methods.
According to the report, the page where users can input a code generated by a generator app was also inoperable. After inputting the code, the page simply refreshed and redirected the user to the Logged Out page.
The issue has been remedied, but Twitter has yet to acknowledge it via its official Twitter or Twitter Support accounts. During this disruption, the Downdetector website experienced a significant increase in user complaints. This suggested that the problem was pervasive.
