Netizens Flock To Twitter As Reddit Goes Down Globally

Reddit suffered from a 90-minute outage but things have now been restored to normal.

Reddit suffered an outage for about 90 minutes leading people to panic and descend on Twitter to complain. The micro-blogging platform was full of Reddit users tweeting about the outage and talking about how they needed it up and working the soonest. Reddit shut down at about 12:30 PM AEST and it was restored by 2 PM AEST.

People started to notice when other Reddit users started tweeting asking if the site was down. This lead to hundreds of Reddit users taking to Twitter to complain about the outage, hoping things would resume to normal soon.

“How on Earth am I supposed to argue with people on the r/sto subreddit if the servers are down??? Reddit, I demand answers,” one person tweeted in despair.

One Reddit user also blamed the outage on the Victorian premier. “I can’t believe Reddit is down during lockdown. How could Dan Andrews do this to us?” the user wrote.

“Reddit has been down for an hour, please check on your nerdy friends y’all,” tweeted another.

Reddit was about to solve the issue soon and the site was back up and running by 2 PM AEST and the complaints were replaces with happy GIFs and emojis. “Life update: Reddit is back thank you internet Gods,” one satisfied user tweeted.

Reddit is yet to reveal what the reason behind the outage was. Some Reddit users have been jokingly speculating that the outage could be a result of hackers or because of Dogecoin.
