Twitter images and links are currently broken
Twitter is experiencing issues once again. Multiple users, including folks on the TechCrunch team, are currently unable to view links and images on the social network. According to reports on third-party web monitoring service Downdetector, the issues began at around 11:50 a.m. ET.
Clicking on a link brings up an error message that says “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 link in the error message also appears to be broken.
Twitter no longer has a media relations department and cannot be contacted for comment about the issues.
This latest outage comes about a week after Elon Musk slashed more than 200 jobs in the latest round of layoffs at the company. The cuts involved Twitter Blue head Esther Crawford and newsletter app Revue’s Martijn de Kuijper.
After Elon Musk took over Twitter last October and fired thousands of employees, many feared that the social network would slowly fall apart. This is not the first time that Twitter has faced issues in the past few months. Just a few days ago, many parts of the social network, including the timeline, were broken for users all over the world. Last month, Twitter started showing users that they were over their “daily rate limit,” while another bug was preventing people from following other users. In December, the social network faced glitches and showed users a “rate-exceeding limit” error.
