Would you like to retry or save this tweet in drafts?” Users also faced difficulties in sending or loading direct messages.
The users experienced site down from 4:30 pm to 6 pm ET yesterday. During this time many users reported the issue.
As the twitter site was down, users were able to schedule their tweets using the calendar icon.
Twitter has not declared any update regarding maximum daily limit of tweets. However, Twitter’s website mentions that users can send maximum 2,400 tweets per day and maximum 500 direct messages.
