YouTube Down

Apparently places all over the world had a YouTube outage for more than an hour. Wonder why it took so long and why it went down. Any theories?

It’s pretty crazy to think how many people can be affected when YouTube goes down

It is not just YouTube. Snapchat, Discord, Gmail is still down. But Twitter is staying strong… :laughing:

300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. That might be it.
