Disgruntled Twitter users across the United Kingdom and Spain are sounding off that Twitter is down, with many resorting to VPNs in order to post and interact with others online.
At approximately 4:50 PM PST, users reported an outage for the social media platform, with Down Detector showing an outage across the region marked in red.
Others complained that their feeds were completely blank, with some able to post but unable to read the Tweets from those they follow.

The outage seems to have spread across Europe into countries like Spain, with some residents reporting that the site was down for them, as well.

That's not all: some say the outage lasted for around a ten minute period, coming back online for users after that time had passed.

While no official statement has been made yet in regard to the cause of the outage, the site definitely experienced a hiccup across the pond that sent the Twitterverse into a tizzy.
