Users of twitter report instabilities on the social network between late morning and early afternoon this Saturday (1st). According to the reports, the searches and results of the “for you” tab of the platform were not being displayed for multiple profiles.

When trying to access these tools, users were faced with messages like “Oops, something went wrong” and “Limit rate exceeded”. The DownDetector website, which monitors the availability of digital services, received hundreds of reports of failures.
