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.
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.
