5 Reasons the Twitter Content Not Available Error Keeps Appearing

You should know why the content is not available Twitter errors keep appearing before showing you how to fix it. The sections below explain why X displays this message on your device.

  1. There are problems with Twitter’s servers: X relies on its servers to show various posts, images, videos, and GIFs in your feed. When there are issues with the platform’s servers, content stops loading properly on your device. In this situation, everyone, or at least the majority of the people who use X, will face the same issues.
  2. The app’s or website’s cached data is corrupt: Cache is temporary files designed to speed up using X on your desktop browser and mobile app. Sometimes, these files become corrupt, causing the media files to stop working.
  3. Your internet or mobile network provider is facing issues: The internet or mobile network provider allows you to use X on your device. If there are issues here, an error will pop up whenever you try to use this platform.
  4. The video isn’t available in your region: Video uploaders may block you from seeing specific videos if you aren’t from a particular area. As a result, the video won’t load, or you’ll see the “This Video is Not Available in Your Location” message.
  5. You are using an outdated version of the Twitter app: App developers push out updates to fix bugs in the older versions of their apps. If you have an older app version, this is why you’re facing this issue.

How Do I Fix Content Not Available on Twitter? 5 Ways To Fix This Issue

The guides below answer this common question|: How do I fix content not available on Twitter?

1. Ensure Your Device Has an Internet Connection

First, you must ensure your device has an internet connection. Look at your device and check if your WiFi is on. Also, make sure you enable your mobile network. Sometimes, your smartphone will disconnect from the WiFi as you’re too far from the router. If this doesn’t work, restart your device to see if this resolves your issue. 

Also, look at your router to ensure there is an active internet connection. If there are any issues, the color of some lights will change. You can always refer to the manual to identify potential networking issues. Restart the router and try using X again. 

2. Confirm Twitter’s Servers Are Online

If your device has an internet connection, the next step is to verify the status of Twitter’s servers. This is easy, as several services, like Downdetector by Ookla, provide server-related information. It relies on user reports and verifies complaints by monitoring X’s service regularly. 

Search for Twitter on this website and check the outage graph. If there are issues, this chart shows how many users report problems with X during 24 hours. Also, if you scroll down, people will leave comments about the issue they’re facing.

  2. Press and hold the app’s icon until a dropdown menu appears.
