Twitter initially tries to tweet the news of the failure

As of 13:30 Iraq time, Twitter was still struggling to resume to a full service, after suffering a full scale global outage at about 11:20. Users on mobile and on web were greeted with a technical fault page, which acknowledged the initial complete disruption.

Service availability has fluctuated since then, with Yalla able to read and post tweets, but unable to search via hashtags.

Users were typically sarcastic about the situation.
