The Snapchat The support account tweeted: “Many Snapchatters are having difficulty using the app. Wait, we’re working on a fix. Until then, we recommend that you stay signed in.”

Google Cloud’s tech support account also released a statement on Twitter saying it was aware of an “issue” with the platform and directed users to its dashboard to monitor the situation.
