Now it turns out that Youtube had a major blackout.

"Thanks for your reports about YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Music access issues", the California-based company tweeted before the problem appeared to be resolved.

The global outage of YouTube comes a day after Twitter users, particularly iOS users, went into a frenzy for about an hour, when the app began streaming notifications in a cryptic series of alphanumeric characters.


The video-sharing website has acknowledged the outage in a tweet. "If you continue to experience issues, please let us know", the company said in a post to its official Twitter account. One of Google's subsidiaries, Youtube was launched in 2005. Watch YouTube, Facebook & Instagram Videos Within WhatsApp!

YouTube has had outages before, like a brief crash during the FIFA World Cup this summer when many customers paid for a live stream of the games. Similar to the website, the YouTube app showed blank areas on the homescreen, while navigating to the "trending", "subscriptions" and "library" tabs returned error messages.

YouTube's search functions were still functioning on the web and mobile - however, the videos were not playable from the results screen.
