This Thursday, many users are logging onto Twitter right now and wondering the same thing: Why is Twitter down? Many of us (my bitter self included) are unable to load tweets on mobile, or are being rerouted to the 'Something is technically wrong' page on desktop. At approximately 2:46 p.m. EST, popular website Down Detector started receiving reports that users were having difficulty loading Twitter, with a Live Outage map detecting Twitter issues on both coasts in the U.S. as well as parts of Europe and most notably Japan.
This is where Down Detector comes in. Find your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and in moments you will know the scope of the problem.

It's been a week of intense speculation as to the role and future of Spotify within the music industry.
A Twitter spokesperson emailed a statement shedding some light on the outage. They wrote,
The outage was due to an internal configuration change, which we're now fixing. Some people may be able to access Twitter again and we're working to make sure Twitter is available to everyone as quickly as possible. We'll continue to update the status page here.
In the meantime, it isn't too hard to speculate as to what could be happening. While there are plenty of reasons Twitter could be down, it is rare that it every stays down for more than a few minutes, so let's all take a deep breath and try not to fret too too much. It's 2019 — if there were ever a time for users to burn out the servers with #HotTakes, it is right now, y'all. But barring that, here are a few reasons Twitter might be down, based on what's happened in the past:
Users May Have Overloaded The Servers
Look, there's been a lot of news in the past ... oh, six months. (Poseidon help us.) While in this case it seems a little unlikely, because Twitter has adjusted to its large user base, there is always the slim chance that so many of us logged on this morning that it overwhelmed the servers, and they need a chance to catch their breath. If this is the case, we should be back to tweeting as regularly scheduled within the next hour.
Twitter May Be Experiencing A DDoS Attack
On Oct. 21, 2016 Twitter was one of many sites that fell victim to a 'massive cyber attack' instigated against Dyn, Inc., that also affected Reddit and Spotify. While a lot of users' heads might be going in that direction — particularly with all the news about recent hacking situations flooding the internet waves — this seems like an unlikely scenario as well, given that Down Detector is not reporting any outages for sites that are also affiliated with Dyn, Inc.
Twitter Is Just Getting Its Friday Swerve On Early
OK, Twitter is not a sentient being, I get it. But if anyone deserved a break right now during this political hell fire, wouldn't it be Twitter? Pour one out for the little blue bird, y'all, and take a breath. Twitter is actively working to address the situation, and no doubt we'll all be tweeting to our hearts' contents soon.

RESULTS SUMMARY FOR SPOTIFY.CO.UK:
Unfortunately we did not receive a 200 OK HTTP status code as a response. This means that the website is currently unavailable and down for everybody (not just you) or you have entered an invalid domain name for this query. Possibly the icefilms.info web server is down, overloaded, unreachable (network problem), or a website or server maintenance is in progress right now. This could also indicate a DNS lookup problem as well (incorrect settings and configuration of the DNS servers) or other hosting related issues.

COMMON USER ERRORS
Check your internet connection. A bad router (or similar software or even ISP) configuration of your network could cause this error.
Check your browser settings to be sure that the site or IP address is not denied or disabled. Also check proxy settings as well.
Some security softwares automatically deny certain websites. Disable them for 5 minutes and try to load the webpage.
If an other device can connect to the host on the same network, this could indicate an operating system error or misconfiguration.
Finally, the mother of all solutions is: the reset. Restarting your device solves more than 50% of all errors. Doesn't it?
COMMON SERVER ERRORS
Expired domain name, bad DNS configuration or client side (web browser or ISP) DNS Cache settings could cause a problem.
As with any computer, the smallest software or hardware failure on the web server may result in website outage.
An 5xx ERROR message is displayed (500 Internal Error is the most common) in case of bad server configuration.
Hosting companies have problems too. 99.9% uptime means, there is ~9 hours of downtime in a year.
From (common) unpaid bills to an unfortunate natural disaster (cut wires), there are plenty of reasons why is spotify down right now.
WHAT TO DO
Wait a few minutes
Most likely it is a temporary problem with the host or web server and the problem should be resolved shortly. Just wait a few minutes then try again later.
Search for official feeds and announcements for the website involved. Major downtimes (which are not fixed within minutes) are usually reported or tweeted.
Search social networks like twitter or facebook to see if other people experienced problems with spotify.co.uk or not.
If you know the e-mail address, you could contact the website (or webmaster) for further information. Popular e-mail prefixes: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected]
