CLEVELAND — Twitter users across the globe were experiencing outages Thursday.
According to DownDetector, outages were heavily impacting the northeastern part of the United States.
Outages began Thursday afternoon and continued during President Trump’s social media summit. The site was down for nearly an hour.
