Was your Snapchat down Monday? You were not the only one.
The Internet was flooded with comments as popular social network Snapchat seemed to go down for a few hours Monday afternoon.
Users reported issues sending and receiving snaps and refreshing stories, with those logging out of the app in a bid to refresh it also reporting they were not able to log back in.
Snapchat acknowledged the service was having issues, taking to Twitter to say that the company was working on a fix and telling users not to log out of the app.
We’re aware of the issue and working on a fix🔧 Stay tuned for updates! ⚠️We recommend staying logged into your account.

Snapchat appeared to come back online around 6 p.m. ET, though some users still reported having issues.
You’re kidding if it started working for 5 minutes then broke again.
