On Wednesday, Twitter CEO Elon Musk said that Twitter should “feel faster” due to “significant backend server architecture changes” being rolled out.

Downdetector shows a spike of complaints about a Twitter outage which has mostly subsided by now, with 82 percent of users reporting that Twitter’s website wasn’t working properly. (Editor’s note: Downdetector is owned by Mashable’s parent company, Ziff Davis).

When asked about the outages, Musk tweeted “works for me.” Well, we guess that’s sorted then.
