Snapocalypse: Snapchat users react on Twitter as app goes dark


Much to the despair of many social media users, popular app Snapchat went down last night. 

The image-sharing app was unusable for a number of hours, as the app would not refresh or allow users to send snaps.

The Snapchat support page tweeted out to the thousands who had gone online en masse to question what was happening with the app.

'We're aware of the issue and working on a fix,' read a Twitter statement from the app last night.

'Stay tuned for updates! We recommend staying logged into your account.' 

Social media was of course in uproar over the issue, which has since been rectified:
