Twitter in Chaos: Outages, Broken Links and Images, and Unintended Consequences After Elon Musk Takeover

On Friday, Twitter experienced widespread outages after a series of changes were made to the platform following Elon Musk’s takeover. According to The Washington Post, Twitter’s changes prompted the outages, which affected many users worldwide.

CNN reported that this was one of the biggest outages Twitter has seen since Musk took over. The company has yet to comment on the issue.

Meanwhile, Gizmodo reported that an error had scrambled Twitter links and images, causing confusion for users.

Business Insider reported that Twitter had broken after the change had “unintended consequences.” The company’s team is reportedly working to fix the issue, but no timeline for a resolution has been provided.

In a separate incident, Fortune reported that Twitter employees lost access to Slack after previously regaining it. However, even with access to Slack again, Twitter was still reportedly broken.

Overall, it has been a challenging day for the social media giant, and it remains to be seen how long it will take to restore normal functionality to the platform.
