If you’re hoping to access Reddit this morning you are out of luck. The popular content-sharing platform appears to be down with users seeing a message that reads “connection failure” when attempting to access the site. Thousands of users seem to be hit by the gremlins with over 15,000 reports currently showing on Down Detector.
This independent outage monitor has registered a huge spike in Reddit down reports in the past hour and it seems that users of this popular site aren’t the only ones facing problems.
Amazon’s Web Services, which power huge swathes of the internet, appears to be struggling with numerous websites now offline.
Along with Reddit, it seems Amazon, eBay, Twitter, Spotify and more are all facing difficulties so it could be a frustrating day for anyone heading online.
Speaking on Down Detector’s forum page one user said: What’s happening… Twitch down. Reddit down. Amazon down. Audible down. Did the the AWS servers just get melted?! #twitchdown #redditdown #amazondown #audibledown”
Whilst another added: “Amazon Reddit and twitch are all down right now @Amazon fix ur servers.”
