Twitter is back online for some people after being down for an hour or so Thursday afternoon. Tweets weren't loading in the app or on desktop for several Engadget editors, while Down Detector had a massive spike in outage reports.
Twitter said the outage was due to "an internal system change" and it's fixing the issue. It said everything should be up and running again soon.

The interruption was due to an internal system change, which we're now fixing. We're sorry for the inconvenience and should be at 100% soon. https://t.co/HXOiFVbgPK— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) July 11, 2019
