Snapchat is back: All the best memes and reactions after platform becomes latest app to suffer major outage

After several hours of Snapchat being among the many platforms to experience major outages, users can rejoice as the issue has been fixed!

Snapchat Support took to their official Twitter to tweet the following: “The issue has been fixed! If you’re still having trouble, please let us know. Happy Snapping!”

Website and app monitor Down Detector registered tens of thousands of reports from Snapchat users on Wednesday and the official Snapchat Support account on Twitter posted: “We’re aware that some Snapchatters are having issues using the app right now - hang tight, we’re looking into it!” after people took to social media to complain about the issue.

The news, of course, came just a week after Facebook was hit by issues across all of its apps, including Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger for over six hours.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson from the app told the Independent that the cause was unknown and the problem did not affect all app users.

So, as people were forced to go outside into the *shudder* real world once more, here are some of the best memes and reactions to the problem.
