Is Snapchat down?

Snapchat is a mobile app that allows users to send and receive "self-destructing" photos and videos. Photos and videos taken with the app are called snaps. The sender of a message is able to determine the period that a message can be viewed by setting a limit between one and ten seconds.

    Last night, two drunk people joined my Lyft. A cyclist crashed—my instinct was to roll down the window and ask if they were okay. Meanwhile the guy in the front seat laughed at them and took video. I confronted him about it and he lied to me (I know Snapchat UI brah). 1/

    @jfirthlufc @dhunts0102 @Rendle_Only1 Completely fabricated story. Took an image from his Snapchat story (available to everyone) and made out like it was aimed at a young girl. The lad even confirmed he'd made it up later down the line.

  • Master_Lamalas Lamalas (@Master_Lamalas) reported

    @ItsAnAmerican @KCStar The kid doesn't have a broken arm. He was on a Snapchat the night before the story broke (Thursday) dancing with no signs of injuries. The police report and verified this by stating it was a minor injury like a bruise.

    Why does everyone that goes to Auburn repost someone else’s Snapchat story when there is 500 names mashed together on the top and the quality is terrible. Just talk trash on twitter like a normal person

    @snapchatsupport Have tried that also, alongside uninstalling and reinstalling, clearing data AND cache. When this problem occurred I was using the snapchat beta, and tried to uninstall and leave the beta and install the official version instead, and still struggling.

  • Jawnsky_ Jawnsky 🌤 (@Jawnsky_) reported

    @Snapchat you took away my snapstreak when I had sent multiple snaps/received in 24hrs!!! Help!

  • larsiboioioi Lars Aaby (@larsiboioioi) reported

    @snapchatsupport Snapchat is up to date, OS is up to date, switching connection does nothing except "loading" the snap, and then leaving me with the same issue.

  • kash20002 kash (@kash20002) reported

    @DrivingGuild Lyft is a worse IPO than snapchat. Transportation sector is down across the board for quite sometime.

  • jeffsmudde jeff 📷 emo (@jeffsmudde) reported

    Using your phone to record a few parts of the concert is okay (such as insta stoeis or snapchat) — but using your phone to record a large portion of the concert is disrespectful. Put ya dam phone down and experience it, but still show it off to your friends now and then.

  • ikooko_official ikooko🐺 (@ikooko_official) reported

    @techinsider I don't quite buy that it's a case of "developer's laziness". There have been several third party apps i.e. Casper for Snapchat by @liamcottle, that have solved these issues.Instead of integrating these solutions, Snapchat served then a cease and desist and their solutions died.
