YouTube restored after going down
Popular social media site YouTube has been restored.
Users took to Twitter and other sites to detail their experiences early Wednesday evening after the site when down.
YouTube would later confirm that it was having an issue.
“If you’re having trouble watching videos on YouTube right now, you’re not alone – our team is aware of the issue and working on a fix,” YouTube support said in a tweet at 7:23 p.m.
The issues mainly affect playback on the site and appear to be affecting hundreds of thousands of users in the United States and elsewhere.
As at 7:30 p.m. there were more than 280,000 reports of issues affecting YouTube, according to DownDetector, a site that monitors online outage reports.
Almost an hour later, however, the service was restored.
