There is no instant fix to Twitter being down, and rectification of the issue from the company's end can only solve the issue. Additionally, many users had attempted to reinstall the app, which is a pointless endeavour as the application has no issues. What most likely is a server issue will need to be fixed by Twitter itself.

Usually, such outages don't last long. You should be able to read tweets from your favourite celebrities and news agencies very soon!

To help Twitter and fellow users understand the degree of the outage next time, you may report it to DownDetector.
