What you need to know

If you're having trouble accessing Twitter right now, you're not the only one. As of 2:46 PM ET on July 11, the mega-popular social network went down for a lot of people.

Twitter doesn't appear to work no matter how you usually access it, whether that be via the desktop site or mobile apps.

People all around the world are reporting outages, including various parts of the U.S., Brazil, Saudi Arabia, and more.

It's unclear when Twitter will be able to get things back up and running, but we'll be sure to monitor things and update this post accordingly once things are back to normal.

Portable (and affordable) power accessories we love

Each and every one of these charging gadgets will keep your favorite gear and gadgets going for longer, and none of them costs more than $30.

VisionTek 8,000 mAh micro-USB power bank ($13 at Dell)

This compact dual-output powerbank can speedily recharge any and all your devices, thanks to a two-amp "fast charge feature," using its micro-USB out port. Its simple design includes an LED indicator, and it costs about as much as a single ticket to the movies.

Panasonic eneloop AA batteries (From $13 at Dell)

Panasonic's rechargeable batteries are among the best available, and just a couple of them will keep your favorite remote, mice or other peripherals powered up when you need them. They're also eco. And the company's affordable charger fits and charges both AA and AAA batteries at the same time.

Belkin Qi Wireless Charging Pad ($30 at Dell)

This unobtrusive Qi wireless charging pad looks good (and kind of like a UFO …) and easily charges all your Qi-compatible device up to 5W. Its LED indicator lights up when you're charging. And it costs just $30.
