Several Twitter users in the UAE and across the world have complained of experiencing difficulties in trying to tweet since last night.

“Something is technically wrong. Thanks for noticing—we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon” is the message that flashes on the screen if you try to post something.

Despite that, some tweets seem to be have been posted once users check their account, but the error message continues to crop up.

Twitter Inc. said late on Monday that it was experiencing an issue with tweeting and a delay in timelines.

More than 1,750 users reported service disruption to Downdetector,  which tracks website service status. A few reports came around 7am and hundreds more continue to flood in.

Users of Twitter, whose main service allows broadcast of 140-character messages, were facing a delay of 25 minutes to 45 minutes.
“Our engineers are currently working on this issue,” Twitter said on its website.
