YouTube users around many parts of the world, experienced a hitch today as their Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops and many other devices turned unresponsive to YouTube links for sometime. The sad experience took to twitter with intense trend from various accounts that used the hashtag “#YouTubeDOWN” in hundreds of thousands generated tweets
‘’everyone is logging onto twitter to see if anyone’s YouTube isn’t working #YouTubeDOWN’’ – from twitter user
The challenge got various error feedbacks to different users, but mostly, its android App response was that YouTube Mobile was not working due to a server problem along with code ‘429’, so from this, it can be inferred that the crashing was related to server malfunctioning.
Within less than 20 minutes of shut down, lost connectivity and seemed broken links, came back active! But this must have stirred a lot of damage claims. Imagine almost posting a time-consuming video only for the screen of your device to act naughty at the snap of a finger as you attempted posting. However, as some YouTube users regained video streaming, YouTube’s response for the 10-15 minutes disruption could be reasonable when disclosed or may turn out to be somewhat compensating.
