    Users of Twitter and its "pro" social media management tool Tweetdeck are reporting major outages, with hundreds of users unable to access the service.

    According to Downdetector, a website that monitors social media outages, there have been over 10,000 reports of Twitter crashing with the issues regarding the site on PC's and laptops, rather than the mobile app.

    Twitter users have made their feelings known about the latest outage in the comments section of the Downdetector site, as dozens report that they were told they were "over their daily limit" when trying to post tweets.

    One frustrated Tweeter wrote: "It appears that Twitter is down in a BIG way. I can't post a new tweet or even reply to one."

    Many users appear to blame new owner Elon Musk for the problem. One said: "On one hand i hope Twitter dies and goes to hell …but on the other hand where else will i talk about my interests?"

    Another added: "I hope Mr. Elon Musk didn't kill TweetDeck – how am I gonna stalk people?"

    Some users seem to be able to schedule tweets, even though they can't tweet normally, and are using tweets scheduled a short time into the future as a workaround.
