Snapchat went down and people freaked out

Snapchat users freaked out as the photo-sharing service went down before the holiday weekend. 

Snapchat confirmed on Twitter around 9:15am PT that it is looking into the issue after complaints spiked.

According to Down Detector, which tracks website and app outages, most of the people hit are on the west and east coasts, along with Europe. 

Much of the complaints on Twitter came from Snapchatters worried that they would lose their “streaks” of sharing a photo with a friend every day.
