While Fortnite gamers have continued to freak out over the game disappearing into a black hole and remaining offline, Snapchat users found themselves in their own black hole.

Shortly after 8:00 a.m. PT today, users began reporting that they were unable to send snaps, receive snaps and refresh their feed.

According to DownDetector, over 18,000 people reported having issues with the app.

Of course, the outage immediately sent users to Twitter for the latest round of Snapchat jokes.

 Just over an hour later, Snapchat Support shared a tweet stating they had resolved the issues.

However, many users are still reporting problems.

This major outage follows only a few days since the last, when Snapchat went offline for hours Oct. 9.

According to DownDetector, users have been reporting issues with the app nearly every day this month.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
