Twitter suffered an outage on Thursday that prevented some users from being able to use the social network properly for about an hour.

Users who visited the website were greeted with a “Something is technically wrong” message while some who tried to use the app saw a “Tweets aren’t loading right now” note when trying to refresh their feeds.

The outage was due to “an internal configuration change,” according to Twitter’s status website. It began shortly before 3pm ET, but the website started to regain functionality around 3:45pm. The services was back up for most people at 5:10pm, according to Twitter’s status website.

“Twitter is now back up for most people,” Twitter said on its status website. “We’re working to get to 100% soon.”

The outage occurred at the same time as President Trump’s social media summit at the White House, to which Twitter did not receive an invite. At the summit, Trump met with prominent conservative social media personalities.

Previously, Twitter experienced delays on some of its services on July 3, according to the company’s status website.

Twitter’s stock price was down more than 1 percent on Thursday after the outage began.

Here’s what the home page of Twitter looked like for many people around 3pm.

Google services restored after outage made YouTube, Gmail and other apps unavailable

Silhouettes of people holding laptops are seen in front of the logo of ‘Google’ technology company.

Services such as YouTube, Gmail and Snapchat, which use Google’s technology, were restored Sunday around 7 p.m. ET (4 p.m. PT) after experiencing several hours of outage that appeared contained only to parts of the United States.

Google had said it was experiencing high levels of network congestion in eastern U.S., which affected multiple services in Google Cloud, G Suite and YouTube. Apple, which uses Google Cloud for some of its services, was also reporting issues with applications ranging from iMessage to iCloud.

The exact cause of the outage is not immediately known.

“We will conduct an internal investigation of this issue and make appropriate improvements to our systems to help prevent or minimize future recurrence,” Google said. “We will provide a detailed report of this incident once we have completed our internal investigation.”

The incident began at about 12:25 p.m. PT. Users began reporting that they were unable to access certain services.

Snapchat said it was aware that some users were unable to use the app.

Users took to Twitter to report that YouTube was also experiencing issues.

There were also numerous complaints that Gmail was not functioning.

Last October, YouTube experienced a major outage around the world.

— CNBC’s Saheli Roy Choudhury contributed to this report.

Facebook stock falls after the executive in charge of all its products steps down

Facebook stock is falling Friday, the day after Chief Product Officer Chris Cox announced he was leaving the company in light of its recent pivot to privacy.

Shares fell as much as 4.5 percent in early trading, sinking below $163 at its lowest point. The stock eased off in mid-morning trading and was last seen roughly 2.5 percent down.

Insiders told CNBC that Cox was the “heart and soul” of Facebook. He was among the earlier employees and reported directly to CEO Mark Zuckerberg. His departure hangs uncertainty on Facebook’s recent announcement to integrate its family of apps and prioritize private communication.

Separately Friday, Facebook drew criticism related to a terrorist incident in New Zealand in which a shooter live-streamed his attack on Facebook. The shootings claimed at least 49 lives.

The company was alerted to the post by New Zealand police and said it has been taking down re-postings of the video and messages praising the shooter as it becomes aware of them.

On top of that, Facebook suffered its longest outage ever this week. The service was reinstated Thursday after a widespread outage that last nearly a day.

In a statement Thursday, the company blamed a “server configuration change that triggered a cascading series of issues” for the outage.

The stock shed 1.8 percent by the end of trading Thursday.

Facebook has been down for hours, Instagram and WhatsApp also affected

Facebook users around the world reported issues logging into and posting on the site as well as on Instagram and WhatsApp thoughout the day on Wednesday. Facebook did not give a reason for the outage, and provided minimal information other than acknowledging it is aware services are down in some areas.

Facebook shares were relatively unchanged Wednesday afternoon.

The company acknowledged the outage in a tweet Wednesday, saying, “We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps. We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.”

It later confirmed the problem was not the result of a DDoS attack, which refers to a Distributed Denial-of-Service attack in which a hacker overwhelms a site by flooding it with fake traffic.

Reports of problems with Facebook peaked at over 11,000 worldwide according to Downdetector, a website where users can report problems on apps and websites. Downdetector listed zero problems by about 5 p.m. Eastern, and many people reported their access had been restored, but Facebook has not yet confirmed the issues were resolved.

Users reported a variety of problems, from being unable to load the site at all to not being able to post comments. Facebook users posted screenshots on Twitter showing error messages when they tried to load the app. When loading the site, some users’ got a message on the screen saying “Account Temporarily Unavailable.”

At a Facebook event at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas Wednesday, the company’s head of video products cracked a joke when he ran into technical issues.

“Today is the technical difficulties day for Facebook, I guess,” cracked Paresh Rajwat, in a reference to the company’s worldwide service outage when his presentation’s video failed to include audio. Rajwat was announcing new features for Facebook’s Watch video service.

Technical issues with Facebook have historically posed serious problems for advertisers who use the platform and even other websites.

Facebook previously experienced an outage of its tool for advertisers in November at a time when marketers were trying to place ads for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

In 2013, Facebook experienced a glitch which took several websites down with it thanks to the prevalence of its login feature across the internet. When users tried to log into a website with their Facebook profile, they were directed to a Facebook error page, Business Insider reported at the time. The glitch, which only lasted a few minutes, affected websites including The New York Times and CNN, Business Insider reported.
