Twitter crashed this afternoon due to an issue with the API

Twitter today suffered an embarrassing glitch that temporarily discontinued links to external websites and even to Twitter’s own web pages.

The problem lasted about 45 minutes and some of us experienced it firsthand.

For as long as the problem lasted, clicking on any link would show this error message:

{ “errors”:[{«message»:»Your current API plan does not include access to this endpoint, please see for more information»,»code»:467}]}

Clicking the link did not resolve the issue as it gave the same error message as the API.

In addition to news articles and other external links, the error message would appear when we tried to click on Twitter’s terms of service, privacy policy, cookies policy, and other similar pages.

The official Twitter support account recognized the problem before it was resolved.

Some parts of Twitter may not be working as expected at this time. We made an internal change that had some unintended consequences. We’re working on it now and will share an update when it’s fixed.

“This platform breaks so easily (sigh). It will be fixed soon”wrote CEO Elon Musk. He later added that a “a small API change had massive ramifications. The code stack is extremely fragile for no good reason. Ultimately it will need a complete rewrite.”
