Yahoo, US web services provider, says it suffered an outage on Thursday across its services, including e-mail.

The service provider took to Twitter to confirm that users may not be able to access some of their services.

In a flurry of tweets, it assured that it was working on the issue.

“You may not be able to access some of our services, including email. Our top priority right now is getting this fixed”, it wrote.

“We understand how difficult this must be for you. We are working especially hard to fix this. Please stay tuned for updates.

“We will try our best to keep you in the loop and will be posting as soon as it is fixed.”

Yahoo, however, did not specify the number of users affected by the outage or its cause.

Downdetector.com, outage monitoring website, also showed that more than four thousand users had been affected by the outage.

Hours later, Yahoo reported that some of its services are back online.

“Most services are back online. This is a technical issue that affected our services. We are sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we get everything back up and running,” it wrote.

“We are aware of a technical issue that is impacting our services,” said a spokesman for Verizon Media, Yahoo’s parent company.

“We’ve been able to get most services back online already and appreciate our customers’ patience as we work to get everything up and running as soon as possible.”
