Reddit is back after an hours-long outage that affected its websites and apps on Tuesday. During the outage, I was consistently seeing an error message when trying to load Reddit on my Chrome browser, and the iOS app’s Home and Discover tabs were showing content but not comment threads. As of 8:41PM ET, however, the issue has been resolved, according to Reddit’s status page.
It’s taken awhile to get to this point. Reddit’s first status message was posted at 3:18PM ET, noting that the platform “is currently offline,” and the company shared a few updates in the hours since. During the outage, Reddit’s primary Twitter account made light of the situation. “Enjoy the productivity,” it wrote at 6:37PM ET. “We’ll be up and running again soon.”
