Several people on social media went into panic mode after Twitter faced shut down on Tuesday evening. Users started experiencing outages around 6:50 a.m. PST today.

Users of the micro-blogging site from across the world were briefly shown an unhappy robot and a message that the site has broken.

Users were met with a technical error page that said "something is technically wrong".

The website went offline at around 5pm, then came back online for some time and then again went offline.
