(Meredith) -- Users across the globe reported issues connecting to Twitter online and through the mobile app Thursday.

On Twitter's official status page, the company issued a statement saying, "[Investigating] We are currently investigating issues people are having accessing Twitter. We will keep you updated on whats happening."

Later Thursday afternoon, Twitter announced the issue was identified to be caused by an "internal configuration change."

"[Identified] The outage was due to an internal configuration change, which we're now fixing. Some people may be able to access Twitter again and we're working to make sure Twitter is available to everyone as quickly as possible."

The company said the site should be back online soon.
