 DownDetector, which monitors service of online platforms, showed issue reports starting at 3:40pm ET with 36 complaints and quickly spiked to more than 11,000.

The largest problem plaguing users seems to be a total blackout.

Users are being shown a blank page with a wrench in the center and text underneath that reads: ‘This Page Isn’t Available Right Now.’

‘This may be because of a technical error that we’re working on to fix. Try reloading this page.’

However, the users have been reloading over and over again without any success.
