Twitter suffered a complete outage for approximately an hour Thursday afternoon. The social media platform is now up but isn’t entirely functional for everyone.

Earlier, Twitter users trying to log on to the social network saw a message saying “Something is technically wrong.” The company confirmed the service was down and found the culprit to be “an internal configuration change,” according to the Twitter status page. 

Downdetector showed reports from around the globe confirming Twitter was down starting at 11:46 a.m. PT.
