Many users in Pakistan are apparently unable to access Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram on Tuesday night because the prominent social media networks are all supposedly down.
Users are unable to enter into their accounts on all three sites, therefore they are unable to publish or read anything, according to the outage-tracking website Downdetector.com.
By combining status information from many sources, including user-submitted problems on its platform, Downdetector keeps track of outages. More people could have been impacted by the outage.
Many smartphone users are also saying that WhatsApp is not functioning properly on both computers and mobile devices.
Furthermore, according to studies, many people around the nation have poor internet speed.
Following nationwide demonstrations by PTI employees and supporters in response to party chairman Imran Khan’s imprisonment in the Al-Qadir Trust issue, social media sites including WhatsApp were temporarily shut down.
On the basis of a warrant issued by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Rangers officers detained the former prime minister earlier today from the Islamabad High Court (IHC) grounds.
Following his detention, the PTI asked its followers to demonstrate and “block all roads, close all shops” across Pakistan.
Workers from the PTI then staged demonstrations in a number of cities, including Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Karachi, Gujranwala, Faisalabad, Multan, Peshawar, and Mardan.
Near Nursery in Karachi, protesters and police engaged in physical conflict. They destroyed a bus, tore down street lights, and flung stones at and set fire to police cars. According to accounts, police fired tear gas rounds at the demonstrators.
Other cities where protests were place also saw public property damaged, including Rawalpindi and Lahore.
