It could be Steinekin who might have unintentionally done something wrong. Or it could be Twitter’s algorithm that accidentally took down the Twitter account. As of now, nothing’s confirmed on what actually happened. As the devs have released no news about the reason behind this outage. It’s likely that it must have been a technical glitch.
