According to Twitter users, the platform's recent outage is believed to be a result of Musk firing some engineers in the latest round of layoffs.
Twitter Support has not provided any information about the reason for the outage yet, but the site has been experiencing more glitches since Elon Musk took over and there were widespread layoffs. It appears that the company is slowly deteriorating, with reports of internal tools like Slack and Jira shutting down without notice, forcing employees to take unscheduled days off.
