For a few hours on Wednesday morning, Snap streaks were at risk as several users reported that they could not successfully post story updates or send messages on the service. one in Tweet, the Snapchat Support Twitter account confirmed the issues, telling people “Wait tight, we’re looking at it!”


The source of the problem was not clear, but it does not appear to be a Facebook-level incident. For some of us the app was still mostly functional, and if you weren’t trying to post, you wouldn’t have noticed anything wrong right away. It also wasn’t crashing constantly, which has been a problem for Snapchat.

Snapchat Support Twitter account at around 10:31 AM ET Confirmed The problem is fixed, and everything is working again on our part.
