As the second most visited website in the world, it’s rare for the site to experience big outages, with the last in recent memory back in October 2018.

On June 2nd, at approximately 3pm eastern time, Twitter became inundated with users reporting that they were unable to log in, being met with an error screen, or even an entirely blank YouTube homepage.

The outage appeared to be concentrated in the east coast.

Update: New outage map data from Josh Pescatore on Twitter also appears to show major outages in many European countries too.

Snapchat down too?

Along with reports that YouTube had crashed, users also noticed issues with Snapchat, which seemed to simultaneously begin malfunctioning on June 2.

It’s not clear if the issues are related, but given the timing, it seems likely. It could be an issue with Google servers causing the widespread outage.

We will keep this post updated as more information becomes available.
