Twitter’s massive outage: No evidence of security breach, company says

Social media giant Twitter said they have no evidence of a hack or security breach as its users saw widespread service outages on Thursday evening, dpa reported. Twitter explained the issue was caused "by an inadvertent change we made to our internal systems."

"Twitter should be working for everyone within the next few hours," the company's communication team said in a tweet.

Earlier, the social media giant said it was investigating the issue but "have no evidence this outage is caused by a security breach or hack," according to a message on the company's programming interface, known as API.

Users in US, Germany and Australia among others were greeted with frozen timelines and error messages. In the US the outage lasted around an hour before Twitter was restored.
