Reddit is coming back online after an outage that lasted more than an hour.
The issues began around 3:26 p.m. PT, according to the site’s status page, following “a slight issue with a routine software upgrade.”
Though the company promised to be back online “momentarily,” it wasn’t until more than an hour later — at 4:57 p.m. PT — when they updated to say “bringing the site back slowly.”
Complain on Twitter
While it was down, users who tried to visit the site were greeted with a message saying “Reddit is down for emergency maintenance.” Other users saw error pages.
According to Mashable unsurprisingly, Redditors did not take the roughly 90-minute downtime well.
So what do you do when the front page of the internet goes down? Complain on Twitter, of course.
Reddit being down makes the internet feel empty -.-

And Reddit comes back
With Reddit being Reddit, it only took a few minutes after the site came back online for Redditors to begin sharing their experiences of the outage on AskReddit.
