TikTok users encountered issues using the platform for hours.

TikTok’s hundreds of millions of monthly users had frustration with the platform on July 6th as the app encountered technical difficulties. As fans wondered what could be the core problem, the company swiftly took to Twitter to announce,   that “The TikTok app is currently experiencing some issues, which our team is working quickly to address. Thank you for your patience!”


According to Variety, the app has been experiencing technical difficulties as reports came through the DownDetector in the afternoon. It appeared that a huge chunk of users were unable to have videos load and some not even being able to log on to the app at all.

This of course led to outrage over the inconvenience by users who hit up social media site alternatives like Twitter and Instaram. It took a few hours, but the technical difficulties seen by users slowly eroded in certain parts of the United States.

Last year there was controversy surrounding the social media app by then President Donald Trump. He believed the company was a security threat to the citizens of the United States and wanted the social media app banned from the country.  His plan to ban the organization was met by a huge backlash by users and would eventually be blocked by a judge in court.

Things have come back to normal for users of TikTok as the company informed its followers on social media platform Twitter. The company wrote, …Annnnnd we’re back! Your app experience should be returning to normal. Thanks for bearing with us, everyone.’
