Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • TheBenWedge Ben Wedge (@TheBenWedge) reported

    @astronautalis A buddy of mine runs his own auto shop. He advertises on Craigslist and has no problems getting work to come in. It’s great

  • ccbloodworth Colin Bloodworth (@ccbloodworth) reported from Portland, Oregon

    Craigslist ghosting is so odd to me. Do something: Tell me "no" 🔳 Take your ad down 🔳

  • StAnselmosFire Saint Anselmo 🔥 (@StAnselmosFire) reported

    @jamesthekingsh1 Yeah, but there are sites that broker private sales. Like buying something on Craigslist, with no centralized payment/clearing/shipping. I’ve got no problem with said sites, because private sales will happen regardless. Simply thinking out loud.

  • turkit21 Michael Turk (@turkit21) reported from McCandless Township, Pennsylvania

    My dad put a broken tractor for sale on craigslist at 9:30am. Someone bought it and picked it up by 12:15pm. Gotta say, I'm kind of impressed. I didn't know Dad knew how to work the internet other than emails

  • oiculikeit OicuH8it (@oiculikeit) reported

    Craigslist is not working anymore. He didn't pay the last time.

  • mmcheesy Carrie, B. (@mmcheesy) reported

    Finally going to admit this after 4 years. Ex dumped me two weeks before we were closing on a house that I had secured with cash I'd lose. So I put his number in a Craigslist ad looking for **** pics. He got about 30 before the ad was taken down. #howigotrevenge #noregrets

  • Catalyst_317 Catalyst (@Catalyst_317) reported

    @vaweber765 @CheriJacobus @Vareness_mc I’m willing to hear all sides, but the only thing I see is a Craigslist ad with some pretty blatant issues. I’m really trying to keep an open mind.

  • matmetrro MAT (@matmetrro) reported

    Yo tell redneck ricky bobby, to take down his craiglist ad, and stop scamming phoneix, ******* red necks are scamming now, i feel bad 500 people are people lied too

  • Kimsuesmom AHeintz (@Kimsuesmom) reported

    @JamesMSama $15 per hour, keeping unemployment down, no matter how fleeting and temporary. Ads on Craigslist all the time when he has an upcoming liars meeting.

  • MotherJit 𝔐𝔬𝔬𝔫𝔩𝔦𝔱 𝔍𝔦𝔱🌙 (@MotherJit) reported

    So I picked up the guinea pigs last night from the girl I met on Craigslist...and things have been interesting to say the least. I’ll post videos after they work out their issues😂

  • phatbootyatl Phat Booty DFW (@phatbootyatl) reported from Dallas, Texas

    I'm honestly on freak Twitter because they shut down Craigslist

  • CameoLGarrett Cameo L. Garrett (@CameoLGarrett) reported

    I also found out the CIA was talking ho Craigslist w Mary Donaldson n making requests to take my housing posts down so I couldn't get housing n she could have her friends attack me, **** me, kill me, n steal my property.

  • lives_media ChangeLivesMedia (@lives_media) reported

    When I was down to my vehicle, which I was living in at the time, I asked for help. I did a go fund me and posted to craigslist. I got no money but several offers to stay in a room, IF my girl would screw them regularly.. Lost the van #YANGYANG

  • LLsunflower Lukas🌹 (@LLsunflower) reported

    @Jayseki @marifinkey @stormrdr21 @BernieSanders This would be maybe remotely valid if transit in itself also didn't cost a massive amount. Not just gasoline, but car repair and such, which is a huge issue for what is essentially a minimum wage worker who won't be able to afford more than a craigslist $2K car.

  • nickcostduh Nick Costa (@nickcostduh) reported

    Guitar craigslist ads: LIKE NEW A few chips in the body Updated pickups, pickguard, body, neck, paint, hardware Broken headstock Bought new for $500 asking $10,000 no trades

  • EvieSigma Nymphogear XV (@EvieSigma) reported

    @Cory5412 Yeah! But I can't seem to find one locally, except for some guy on Craigslist in New Jersey asking a ridiculous 65 dollars for one. For comparison, I can get a dual Socket 604 server for $75 if I so desired...

  • Playfulimp The Mosquito (@Playfulimp) reported

    @TrinityMustache Maybe craigslist was down

  • maryellen Maryellen Stewart (@maryellen) reported from Brooklyn, New York

    Was on the curb with my Craigslist chairs and flagged down what i thought my Lyft and this guy rolls his window down and goes “uhhh...not your ride but...not doing anything right now...”

  • jiLLy834n jiLLy834n (@jiLLy834n) reported

    There was this gorgeous apartment in a great area for an unbelievable price on Craigslist but it didn't seem like a scam. The downside was they said one pet only due to sqftage. So, I emailed them and said we have two dogs but they live with us now in less space with zero issue

  • memmek2k Michaela Kaneda/Tetsuo (@memmek2k) reported

    @turnerjoylynch Annnd if you have more time than anything else and aren't in a hurry for cash, it couldn't hurt to throw it up on craiglist as is for $1000 (haggling room; take anything over 700)and see if anyone will bite that wants to fix it themselves and flip it.

  • alyssa_mtl alyssa🍀 (@alyssa_mtl) reported

    @HomeAway is literally a scam. They advertise themselves as a safe home-sharing website but in reality they take ZERO responsibility over your stay at a property. They're basically craigslist except they issue the payment. Don't book with them at any rate, you will get burned.

  • craignewmark craig newmark (@craignewmark) reported

    Appreciated, but you'd want to contact someone in craigslist management. I stepped down from that twenty years ago. (Please help me out, please note lower case "c" to de-emphasize me.) Thanks!

  • FrickYouCensors Black Cat (@FrickYouCensors) reported

    @99freemind @AMC2500 I got my YT channel shut down for reading a craigslist ad asking for crisis actors. They are so busted.

  • Boy4122 Nova (@Boy4122) reported

    @BestNess_ Well if price isnt an issue.... Gamer girl *******! I hear craigslist has quite the few selections.

  • rawsteam239 THE FUCKING GOAT 🐐 (@rawsteam239) reported

    ******** down craigslist down let me go buy me a GIRL FRIEND OFF EBAY hope she ain’t been purchased to much

  • nibroc corbin dunn (@nibroc) reported

    @eeelijahhh Whoa! I'm not defaming you; I'm asking you to stop violating Craigslist's Terms of Service. I have an issue with you guys because you are the ones causing the problem!

  • eeelijahhh Elijah (@eeelijahhh) reported

    @nibroc You can also be sued for defamation by what you’re doing. If you have an issue with the Craigslist posts, take it up with Craigslist

  • BillBlake2018 Bill Blake (@BillBlake2018) reported

    @Torchiest @Official_TTFT @TwitterSupport @Twitter @TwitterSafety Neither of those sites were closed because of SESTA/FOSTA. Craigslist did not close, though they took down their "personals". ******** was closed under prior law, for facilitating prostitution and money laundering. /1

  • WowSuchRicky Ricky (Riot Naquadah) (@WowSuchRicky) reported from Los Angeles, California

    @SabbyrinaW Used to fix Xbox 360s on Craigslist as a kid for money, lol. And mod them, hypothetically 👀

  • HoneyBeaSays Beatrice is Trans 🏳️‍🌈♀️ (@HoneyBeaSays) reported

    I'm really bad at taking down Craigslist ads after posting. I only respond to people offering me less than what I got, and I laugh at them 😂

  • dyhiapadilla Dyhia Belhabib (@dyhiapadilla) reported

    @UBCoceans @coru_ubc @nereusprogram @nationalpost @Wai_Lung I am going to translate this for the larger audience: don’t flush your goldfish down the toilet. Give it away on Craigslist or I know of a few cats who would love a snack (🙀😹). One little sacrifice for the sake of the whole ecosystem.

  • Mely_Babe Melissa Avitia (@Mely_Babe) reported

    Terrible buying something from Craigslist and I give Ricky the address I'm going too just in case 🙃

  • ComputerThug_ Nestle Snipes (@ComputerThug_) reported

    I remember when I used to get on Craigslist personals before they shut it down. I had a few married white men ask if they could watch me **** their wives. Y’all different.

  • daze_gaze Flappy Kitties (@daze_gaze) reported


  • gyvren Been Weirder Arts 🆘 (@gyvren) reported

    @DetroitSteel_ Well, the LAST thing you want to do is use any kind of chemical killer on it. Put up a craigslist ad with some good pics and someone will pay *you* to come remove it for you. Maybe think about relocating gramps instead of putting him down.. just a thought.. 😉

  • Terrance_Blount Terrance Blount (@Terrance_Blount) reported

    @profgalloway @fredwilson @tumblr Ha! I mean, I have a, uh, friend who immediately left the site once it, you know, became less interesting. Look, I am certain it provided value to some, kind of like how Craigslist did, yet had a branch (now shut down) dedicated to hookups. Doesn’t change what it REALLY was. 🙄

  • Borishu_Art Red Dead Emrys (@Borishu_Art) reported

    @KizzyBits Wood filler could also help if your problem is only that the screws are stripped. Also keep an eye out on places like letgo, nextdoor, and Craigslist!! People give bedframes away for free ALL the time if you can pick them up, and some of them are really nice!!

  • willhugalldogs Dana Hole (@willhugalldogs) reported

    @spkstl this is a post you could find on craigslist before SESTA/FOSTA made them shut those sections down

  • TsarinaBaltic Miss Tsarina Baltic (@TsarinaBaltic) reported

    @CelestialEAmber It's usually the wire problem as it's a very sensitive one. It definitely tends to slow shit down if you wrap it over and over again after use. It laged like crazy for me so many times. I just quit completely on webcams and opted to a craigslist canon 70d

  • destinymreed des🌸 (@destinymreed) reported

    @_haleeyy__ i love him way too much to get rid of him. BUT if you’re willing to spend the money, i found him on craigslist & got him as a puppy. so you can look on there. i got him for $360. which is cheap. i was able to talk the girl down.

  • Ellis_Millshire Ellis Millshire (@Ellis_Millshire) reported

    @danib810 @lwmoss1 @Blueheeler28 @DaveBrassonez @DavidIanRobin @BernieSanders Yeah, just as anyone can do. Get on craigslist and find other people in your situation. There are millions. I didn't know any of the people I lived with prior to doing so. If you are too good to do that, then that is your own problem and still not my responsibility.

  • Cementley Chris Bentley (@Cementley) reported

    going on Craigslist for legitimate purchases to furnish the new apartment ... end up having to talk myself down from buying a balalaika and a mini theremin (for now)

  • ShaunHudgins Shaun Hudgins (@ShaunHudgins) reported

    @PrestonWilson44 @PFF_Sam Update: sinkhole no longer a problem as city officials found 6-7 washing machines on Craigslist to patch the hole.

  • mel_caniglia mel (@mel_caniglia) reported

    alright, who the hell is putting stuff on craigslist and putting my number down to be contacted

    @TruMEdi4 @TheRealTGirl518 @OriginalYangsta And takes away many people’s freedom. It shut down craigslist personals! & Just regular ol casual encounters.

    @PickledGingerBC I'm selling some shit on craigslist currently and clearly other people have ZERO problem being total jerkwads when it comes to haggling. They will eat you alive!

  • Zenkitty714 Zennui (@Zenkitty714) reported

    @ellle_em #CatOriginStory Found my Percy on Craigslist. Owners said he's so shy, he might not come out of hiding. Walked in their place, said hello, and this little black cat came running down the hall and fell down on my feet. Owners were gobsmacked. "He never does that!" I took him home

  • MaryPamelaBond3 Mary Pamela Bonds (@MaryPamelaBond3) reported

    The whistle blower web or phone site will shut down people on Craigslist selling pythons. It is against the law to sell pythons except to educational institutions.

  • itslamabih mac denarco (@itslamabih) reported

    ok so the dog abusing youtuber got her dog on CRAIGSLIST and cropped his ears “IN THE MOST EXPENSIVE HUMANE WAY POSSIBLE” someone has to flush the ***** down the toilet

  • WormsAreFine Dan P (the P is silent) (@WormsAreFine) reported

    bay area craigslist rental listings insist “no cooking” as if i’m gonna exclusively eat costco-sized bags of ruffles cool ranch and wash it down with the floorboards of my 3x3 closet like a yuppie termite

  • ZeeInTheMoment 🥴LIBERALSARE🥜🥜🤪🌟🌟🌟 #Shadowbanned (@ZeeInTheMoment) reported

    @ChebaChick @mama2fluffs @JohnCornyn Rally’s are not advertised via Craigslist. They have always been advertised on the website only. He never has a problem filling a stadium as the tickets are always free and people usually camp out to get the best chances of getting in. Try again.

  • LeGoatsLakeShow LeBron 🐐 (@LeGoatsLakeShow) reported

    @Le6oatJames I sold my broken Xbox for 100 on Craigslist. U should do the same

    Got an abused dog on Craigslist + Bad cat - Hi guys, any advice on either issue would be nice! So today I got a mid-sized mutt on Craigslist. She's 1 year old, has no shots records, and isn't fixed. She also shows visible signs of having puppies, is missing most teeth, and ...

    @tiReynard Well I guess now that Craigslist personals are shut down they need to find some way to be murdered easily.

  • BotColbert ColbertBot (@BotColbert) reported

    Then: Craigslist shuts down its adult services. That's okay, I really go there for the slick, beautiful layout.

  • 1001cranes ✨be your own atrocity before god✨ (@1001cranes) reported

    @la_dissonance the furniture section of boston craiglist is always a terrible hole to fall down

  • cantwealljustg5 Right All The Time (@cantwealljustg5) reported

    @ReneeLazz @foster_pann @BernieSanders See that’s the problem people don’t call a spade a spade. Just the way I look at it I guess. For example: I saw a big metal shear for an excavator for sale on Craigslist for $25,000 I knew they sell for $50-$60k thousand I called the guy and said “do you mind if I market this....

  • SamanthaYanity Samantha Yanity (@SamanthaYanity) reported

    A good way to get rid of a couch is to post on craigslist with competitive language. I said it was free to anyone strong enough to carry it down 3 flights without an elevator. Took about an hour to get two college guys to message. 😉
