Hours ago, Twitter users realized they were unable to post or see tweets on their Twitter timelines.

Many had begun suggesting it could be the Nigerian government’s action as #EndSARS protests have made Nigeria the cynosure  of all eyes in the past week from tweets shared by protesters across the country demanding an end to police brutality.

Upon further scrutiny however, it turns out the downtime is not affecting just Nigerian Twitter users but is in fact a global outage.

Recall, Twitter Chief Executive Officier Jack Dorsey was the latest international figure to join the protests against police brutality and criminality in Nigeria.

Dorsey further showed support for the campaign against police brutality in Nigeria by sharing a link for bitcoin donation. The American technology entrepreneur and philanthropist disclosed this in a tweet on Wednesday.

Speaking on the service disruption, a company rep of Variety said, “We know people are having trouble tweeting and using Twitter, we’re working to fix this issue as quickly as possible. We’ll share more when we have it and tweet from @TwitterSupport when we can – stay tuned.”
