The social networking site Twitter has gone down this evening, leaving millions of users struggling to access the site.

Users reported issues late on Thursday night, with the site Down Detector confirming that thousands had reported issues.

It saw a major spike in complaints about problems with the site at around 10pm, with a spike in reports approaching 60,000 by 10.45pm.

Users reported being unable to load or send tweets.

Notifications also appeared to not be loading properly, users said.

A Twitter spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: ‘We know people are having trouble Tweeting and using Twitter.

‘We’re working to fix this issue as quickly as possible.

‘We’ll share more when we have it and Tweet from @TwitterSupport when we can – stay tuned.’

Users reported error messages including ‘something went wrong’ and ‘Tweet failed: There’s something wrong. Please try again later.’
