Sudanese hacktivist group known as Anonymous Sudan said it is responsible for the outage that affected X (formerly Twitter) on Tuesday. Downdetector, a website that tracks problems with online services, reported over 2,700 incidents in the UK and thousands more in the US. The downtime lasted for more than two hours.

Anonymous Sudan, a Sudanese hacktivist group, has claimed responsibility for causing an outage on X (formerly Twitter) as a means of pressuring Elon Musk to launch Starlink internet service in Sudan. The group posted on Telegram, urging Musk to "Open Starlink in Sudan." Despite initial reports suggesting Russian involvement, two members of the group revealed their Sudanese passports. The group's spokesperson, Crush, stated that their goal is to showcase Sudanese skills to the world. Anonymous Sudan previously targeted Nigerian companies to protest potential military action in Niger. Starlink, launched by Elon Musk's SpaceX, has expanded to several African countries, but its availability in Sudan remains uncertain due to socio-political unrest. Internet connectivity in Sudan has been crucial for communication during conflicts, but outages have hindered residents' safety efforts.
