  • TikTok went down around 1pm ET and is impacting users worldwide
  • The app is not refreshing and users unable to aimlessly scroll through videos

TikTok is down for tens of thousands of users worldwide, marking the second crash the app has experienced in a week.

Friday’s outage hit around 1pm ET and is impacting the server connection, which is telling some users there is no internet connection – others are unable to refresh their feed. 

DownDetector, a website that monitors online outage, shows more than 50,000 people in the US have reported issues with TikTok as of 1:19pm ET. It is not clear what is causing the glitch.

The previous crash hit just this past Tuesday and lasted for one-hour. 

Users are flocking to Twitter to see if others are experiencing problems and some are sharing how they hope this is the end of the video sharing app.
