Twitter is now down in many parts of the world, including the US, UK and Japan. The micro-blogging site failed to load, with users being redirected to a default landing page.

An error message greeted visitors to the site as of 10:30 a.m. ET.

This timing will lead many to speculate about what may have caused Twitter to go down.

Users took to another social media giant, Facebook, to report outages on the east coast of the US, Canada, Japan and the Philippines Tuesday.

Twitter users across US, UK, Europe and India started tweeting about the outage when the website was down briefly up after the outage. Users, when they have been able to post their tweets, have voiced their concerns, complaints and even theories of why the platform has stopped working.

In the Down Detector website, which tracks services when they go offline, many users from Mumbai to NY were reporting outage.
