Several X users—previously known as Twitter users—experienced issues with the social media network on Friday afternoon. They had trouble using the smartphone app to submit tweets, accessing the website, and even checking in. A few others mentioned problems with timestamps, stating that all “Tweets” appeared to have been sent on January 1st, 1970.

According to the website outage monitoring service Down Detector, the issues started shortly before 3 p.m. A lot of consumers were upset because they couldn’t access the website or app.
