Can't Access Twitter - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Helen Barbour · 14 April 2014 - 11:04

As per another user today, I have been blocked from accessing Twitter all day - via either Google Chrome or IE - due to apparent security issues. Message says it can't connect to the 'real Twitter', possibly because of an 'attacker' pretending to be Twitter.

Бобан Петровић · 14 April 2014 - 08:58

Linda Cann Pearson · 17 October 2013 - 11:00

I am experiencing the exact same problems as Emily just stated. This is very frustrating. Does anyone know how to contact Twitter or what is going on?

Emily Tack · 17 October 2013 - 10:36

Twitter is down for me, right now. I have tried several times over the last 1/2 hour. I have cleared my DNS cache, cleared cookies, cleared everything that I know how to, on a computer - which is a lot. Nothing... I am able to reply to emails sent me, but I cannot sign in, and when I try repeatedly - I am told that I AM signed in. If I clidk on the link for a forgotten password, I am told to sign out, and then sign in - but there is no link there to do that. I am not new to Twitter, but am caught in a "loop". I cannot even submit a support ticket, because I am told that I am unauthorized to view that information.

Linda Cann Pearson · 17 October 2013 - 07:40

I can't sign in either this morning and also had some problems last night and had to change my password.

Melissa Holland McMahon · 12 September 2013 - 13:17

Ok twitter is down for me using firefox in Okla. Saw where someone said to post @support to let them know via chrome or IE... well i went to do that in chrome & it's typing out backwards in chrome so I can't report it. Anyone know what would cause it to type out backwards?

Debbie McCracken Slaunwhite · 28 August 2013 - 15:50

I have been having problems with my Twitter account for two days now. Sometimes I can connect but there are lots of missing images. Most of the time I'm getting a blank blue page with all the links listed down the left side. Why is there no announcements from Twitter on this?

Cain Aldred · 28 August 2013 - 14:17

Peeps, your best bet is probably to avoid Twitter for the next 12-24 hrs if you can and see what it's like after that period has passed (Assuming it still exists of course).

Tim Burns · 28 August 2013 - 14:08

24 hours now. Twitter doesn't display correctly. Solid background, with text and broken links on the left hand side of the page. Infuriating part is, Twitter won't acknowledge it. Still can't retrieve or view pics either. This is across several PCs and using different browsers.

Angela Leona · 28 August 2013 - 12:37

My sister cant get on using her laptop, i cant get on using mine, cant use it on my brothers phone OR my moms phone, its Only displaying text!! Whats the problem i would like to be able to get on my f#!king twitter!!!
