Snapchat is back up, after users couldn’t post or send messages for hours

For a couple of hours on Wednesday morning, Snap Streaks were at risk as many users reported

they couldn’t successfully post story updates or send messages on the service

In a tweet, the Snapchat Support Twitter account

confirmed the issues, telling people to “hang tight, we’re looking into it!”

The source of the issue was unclear, but this doesn’t seem to be a Facebook-level event

The app itself was still mostly functional for some of us, and if you weren’t trying to post,

you may not have noticed anything wrong right away. It also wasn’t crashing constantly, which has been a problem for Snapchat.
