Gmail service was beset by disruptions prompting users to flock to Twitter to express dismay and seek information about the Web-based email service run by Google.

"We are currently experiencing an issue with some Google services, the California-based Internet giant said in response to an AFP inquiry.

"For everyone who is affected, we apologize for any inconvenience you may be experiencing."

An online "dashboard" that provides real-time updates regarding the status of Google services showed disruptions to both Gmail and Google Drive, which lets people store data on servers in the Internet "cloud."

People thwarted in accessing Gmail took to Twitter for information about the situation and to vent frustration.

"This is why I love Twitter," read a message from a Twitter user with the name Katherine Hurd. "I can confirm that #gmail is down within seconds and see rage-tweets from all over the world."
