Hundreds of Twitter users report several technical problems
Twitter suffers a major outage disabling external links.
Hundred of Twitter users reported on Monday technical issues with the TweetDeck dashboard, according to data from the Downdetector outage tracker.
Downdetector started to receive reports from users about the TweetDeck outage at around 11:30 am (16:30 GMT). The outage tracker has received over 350 reports that users are unable to access the application, according to the data.
Users have been seeing instead a JSON code page with an error message saying, "Your current API plan does not include access to this endpoint, please see https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/twitter-api for more information."
The company, which has recently witnessed instability after Elon Musk took over and cut its staff sharply, said, "Some parts of Twitter may not be working as expected right now. We made an internal change that had some unintended consequences. We’re working on this now and will share an update when it’s fixed."

Musk seemed annoyed by the problem and said in a tweet, "This platform is so brittle (sigh). Will be fixed shortly."
"Twitter is currently experiencing international slowdowns and outages affecting many users," Internet access watchdog NetBlocks said, adding it was also affecting image and video content. Certain users couldn't see images that other users were posting.
This is the second major technical issue that has arisen with the platform in March. Earlier, Twitter users also reported problems when loading new content and said they were unable to see replies to their posts.
Three weeks ago, Twitter users faced various problems with the platform, including the inability to tweet, follow new accounts, or send direct messages.
