Later on Wednesday, people noticed that Twitter had been down for about 90 minutes. This led to reports.
Users said they were told when they had reached their daily post limit. It wasn’t clear whether the problem was caused by a bug or a change in the social platform’s rules.
The live updates on the platform didn’t work for more than an hour, but CNBC said that they did after 6 p.m. Eastern.
Users said they got messages that said, “You have sent more Tweets than you can every day.”
Some users said they could post by using the website’s “schedule tweets” feature.
Twitter hadn’t made any official changes to the number of posts that could be made per day. When problems were reported, the company did not respond right away.
