Twitter Inc was apparently back up on Wednesday after a worldwide outage hit the micro-blogging platform’s website and its dashboard management platform TweetDeck, affecting thousands of users.

Several users were currently able to log in to access Twitter and TweetDeck. The company did not release an official statement on the status update of the outage.

Earlier, outage monitoring website -- Outage.report -- had received more than 4,000 reports of the incident globally, including Japan, Canada and India.

"You might have had trouble Tweeting, getting notifications, or viewing DMs. We're currently working on a fix, and should be back to normal soon", the company said in a tweet bit.ly/2mMFBUv, which did not give further details.

A Twitter representative had earlier told Reuters that the company was investigating issues with TweetDeck, which is used by reporters and other content creators for monitoring tweets from multiple Twitter accounts.

Log in attempts earlier by users of TweetDeck seemed to be redirecting users to Twitter’s website.
