Leading social media platforms; Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Twitter are all experiencing various issues globally today.
Users are reporting bugs, such as images not loading on Instagram and problems with Twitter direct messages, including the app showing notifications for unread DMs that weren’t there when users checked their inbox.
“During one of our routine maintenance operations, we triggered an issue that is making it difficult for some people to upload or send photos and videos. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience,” a Facebook spokesperson told CNN on behalf of its other apps Instagram and WhatsApp.
It’s unclear what caused issues on Twitter, but the company said; “We’re currently having some issues with DM delivery and notifications. We’re working on a fix and will follow up as soon as we have an update for you. Apologies for the inconvenience”.
