    Twitter down/crashing 19th May 17 at 12:54 PM
    Been like this since I started tweeting at 6am, getting over capacity and tweets not embedding.

    Others when I asked are getting major issues too, so don't worry it isn't just you it is us all!

    I've noticed it's also started unfollowing accounts too. I've tried RT'ing a comp tweet from an account I've followed for ages and it says 'Something went wrong'
    I hit F5 and fine it has (or sometimes hasn't) RT'd the comp tweet and sometimes it has (or hasn't) unfollowed the Twitter account.

    As soon as I saw this I started having problems! Of course it had to do this on Friday, the busiest day for twitter competitions. Just typical
    Thanks for the warning, know I would've had a panic moment otherwise

    I can't promise this will work, but it's worth a try. Try refreshing the page after doing anything. If a like/retweet or anything hasn't worked, I think it might show when you refresh the page. So if it doesn't show up, you can retweet/follow again.

    I've noticed that if I click on a tweet, it will show me as not following, but if I go to the account, I still am.

    Yep, it's getting pretty annoying. Just keep getting "Sorry! We did something wrong", pictures are not loading, accounts unfollowed etc. Relieved that it's not just me, thanks for the heads up.

    Mine keeps crashing and coming up error messages. It started when I tried to do rafflecopter tweets but keep getting "Opps" screen!

    I also noticed it's unfollowed some of the big name profiles that do weekly giveaways so I know I would never of unfollowed them myself.

    If you refresh when it shows you are not following it will show you are, I'm leaving twitter alone for a few hours, it's too much effort with it playing up good luck xx


    Totally down for me now

    Mine has been working fine all day so far (probably jinxed it now! ). I've tweeted, retweeted, liked and received a reply from a company. Using an iPad.
