DownDetector, a website that monitors online outages, showed a spike in issue reports just after 12:30pm ET.

By 12:52pm ET, more than 3,000 users in the US had reported problems with the social media network and around the same time, some 1,800 users in the UK also reported issues to DownDetector. 

It is common for social media platforms to crash, but it has been more than a month since Twitter was down – the last time was on October 4.

But other social media platforms, specifically those owned by Meta – Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger, have experienced outages every few weeks lately.

And the latest was just on November 3.

Twitter’s Monday outage, however, seems to be as choppy as Twitter’s service right how, as only some users in regions impacted are experiencing issues.

The social media network announced Friday that it is rolling out a new search button on some accounts that allows users to more easily scan through a specific person’s past tweets.

The button, located in the top right corner next to the 3-dot (or hamburger) menu, had started appearing for a small number of users in October.

It is now rolling out more widely on the iOS Twitter app, XDA Developers reported.

The button is the latest in a long series of new features Twitter has added to its platform in the past few months, many of which are related to privacy.

In October it fully launched a new feature on its web version that lets users remove a follower without blocking them.

The option prevents a chosen user from seeing any of a person’s future posts or know they’ve been removed.
