Resolved API issues with Twitter, causing problems with connections and posting through Buffer

We're currently experiencing issues with the API connection to Twitter. At the moment, we are seeing problems trying to connect or reconnect Twitter accounts to Buffer, as well as issues sending posts from Buffer to Twitter. Our engineering team are investigating this and we're working with Twitter to get a fix in place. We're extremely sorry for the inconvenience and trouble this is causing. Whilst we're unable to post successfully via Twitter's API, you would still be able to log into Twitter natively and post normally there. We will continue to monitor this and update our status page with any new information we receive.

Resolved Failed updates due to Social Channel Disconnects

While performing some planned platform changes, we began to experience a higher rate of update failures due to social channels disconnects. We've addressed the issue with the changes, but some social channels will need to be reconnected in order to ensure updates can publish. We are so very sorry for the disruption this has caused. For more information on how to reconnect your social channel, feel free to reference this Help Center article: https://support.buffer.com/hc/en-us/articles/360038961173-Reconnecting-a-social-channel-in-Buffer-Publish.

Resolved Buffer website partially down

Unfortunately, we are seeing a return of the incident from earlier today where customers from certain regions are having trouble loading their Buffer dashboards successfully. Our engineering team are investigating the cause of this and working to get Buffer fully operational again. We will continue to monitor this issue through the rest of the day and update this page accordingly, once we have more news. We're very sorry this is flaring up again and we hope to be able to resolve it soon.

Resolved Buffer website partially down

We have received several reports that the Buffer website isn't currently loading for some customers.

We are currently investigating this and working on getting Buffer back up for all customers as soon as we can.

Resolved [Analyze] 'Total Fans' not being displayed for Facebook Pages.

Sadly, it appears there is currently an issue within the Facebook API and the 'Total Fans' of a Facebook Page are no being provided. This issue has been reported to Facebook and we're awaiting updates. In the meantime, any graph within Analyze related to the 'Total Fans' metric for Facebook will display zero. We're hoping for a quick resolution and will update this page as information comes available.
