Several users are reporting that they can not access the social network this afternoon.

Users worldwide began experiencing a technical glitch with tweets not loading and the timeline not refreshing.

Twitter acknowledged the issue on its support account and said it is working on a fix. The issue was then resolved but bounced back after some time.
