Social media platform Twitter is down, affecting a number of countries across the world.

In a statement on Tuesday night, Twitter confirmed that some users were having a problem accessing the platform and promised to restore the service soonest.

"Twitter may not be loading for some of you –– we're working on a fix to get you back to your timelines ASAP," Twitter said in a statement.

Some users in Kenya said the application was not loading even as many Kenyans thronged social media platforms for updates on the election conducted on Tuesday.

Twitter reported at about 10:30 PM that the issue affecting its internal systems had been resolved.

"We fixed it! We made an internal systems change that didn't go as planned and have rolled it back. Twitter should now be loading as expected. Sorry about that!" Twitter said.

Net Blocks, a watchdog organization that monitors cybersecurity and the governance of the Internet, said the incident is not related to country-level internet disruptions or filtering.
