Social networking platform Twitter suffered intermittent disruptions to its service earlier today due to what it described as an 'elevated error rate'.

Twitter confirmed the social platform was having stability issues worldwide.

The company's status blog said users might experience some problems loading twitter.com and with Twitter clients.

Twitter support said it was aware of the elevated error rates and was taking action.

The disruptions affected RTÉ.ie's General Election constituency service for a time.
