Tweetdeck experienced another worldwide outage on July 1, with some userss also reporting at the time that the dashboard was automatically redirecting them to the Twitter homepage or to the site's mobile version. The company confirmed the service was down and found the culprit to be "an internal configuration change", according to the Twitter status page.

"We are now investigating issues people are having accessing Twitter and we'll keep you updated on what's happening via our status page", Lindsay McCallum, a Twitter spokesperson, told Digital Trends.
