Reddit is experiencing a major outage right now that may stop you from using the site normally. Users have reported a variety of problems, including issues posting and loading posts and comments.
Reddit reported that it had identified the problem at 1:22pm ET/10:22am PT and was working towards “bringing services back online.” Around 12:30pm ET/9:30am PT just under 40,000 users reported outages on Downdetector.
With their preferred social media site unavailable, some users have taken to Twitter to complain.

In my own tests, I didn’t have any trouble accessing Reddit on the web. I tried it while I was logged in and while I was logged out. However, the app on my phone was totally useless; it couldn’t get past the loading screen with Reddit’s logo.
This story will be updated when Reddit is back online.
