How have Snapchatters reacted?

Countless Snapchaters are fuming that the app is down.

Many weren't aware there was an issue and so tried deleting Snapchat before spending some time downloading it again.

After managing to get the app back on their phones, they found themselves unable to even sign in.

Usurpingly, fans were quick to take to Twitter afterwards to vent.

"Is Snapchat teaching us to social distance from our phones now?? #snapchatdown," one wrote.

Another then added: "Literally turned my phone off and back on closed my apps to see if that was the problem only to realize that Snapchat is down #snapchatdown."

Shortly after, a third wrote: "I really deleted the app and now I can’t get back in, but came to twitter just to see it’s down for everyone #snapchatdown."

Moments later, a fourth tweeted: "Yo Snapchat better come back on Pandemic shii is already on and they had the audacity to go off Lol like yo.. the Audacity #snapchatdown #snapchat."

How many people have been affected?

According to Down Detector, there are over 30,000 posts complaining that Snapchat is down.

The app has more than 210 million unique daily users – so the complaints pile will most likely grow as the problem continues.

More than half of its regular users are aged between 15 and 25.

The technical problem couldn't have come at more of a worse time for young people as they are forced to socially distance themselves from friends.

Hopefully, the issue will be resolved shortly.
