Aside from the login issue, Twitter users also experience infinite loading tweets, unsent messages, and more. Down Detector also confirmed that it is still receiving surging reports, saying that the popular social media app is not working properly.

Meanwhile, Down Detector UK recorded more than 16,000 reports of Twitter down. 

"Tweets may not be loading for some of you. We're working on fixing a problem and you'll be back on the timeline soon," said Twitter via its support website.

"The Twitter data team is investigating a possible system irregularity currently affecting all Twitter API v2 endpoints starting at 2021-04-17 12:00 UTC," the giant social media platform added.  

How to fix Twitter's login issue 

If you are one of the users that are also having trouble using your Twitter app, you can follow these simple methods provided by Twitter's blog. However, these are not 100% effective, but they are still worth the try. 

  • Try clearing your browser's cookies or your app's cache. You can do this by going to the settings menu of your Twitter mobile browser.
  • Always check if you are using the correct login name and password. Sometimes, this prevents you from logging in and could lead to the "Something Went Wrong" error message. 
  • If you can't use your Twitter account through your smartphone, you can try it on your desktop to see if it is really an ongoing outage.
