DownDetector, a site that monitors online outages, shows issue reports came flooding in Thursday morning, with many users claiming their posts are not loading on the platform.

Approximately 49 percent of people reported problems with the app, 44 percent the website and a small seven percent stated the server connection.

Most users are trying to access X from New York City, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Houston and Atlanta.

However, people in the UK, China, Brazil and other countries also report problems.

Some X users noted that the outage appeared just minutes after the Online Safety Act was signed in the UK.

This legislation will require social media companies to keep children safe online.

Social media platforms will be required to prevent and rapidly remove illegal content – such as terrorism and revenge pornography – and stop children from seeing harmful material, such as bullying or self-harm, by enforcing age limits and using age-checking measures.

The rules also require sites to give adults more control over what they see online, offer clear and accessible ways for users to report problems and be transparent about the dangers posed to children on their sites by publishing risk assessments.

Those who fail to comply will face fines of up to $18 million or 10 percent of annual global revenue, potentially billions of pounds for the most prominent firms.

In the most extreme cases, tech bosses could even face prison.
