TikTok is returning to normal after experiencing a widespread outage on Tuesday night.

TikTok users were unable to upload videos on the popular app amid what appeared to be a widespread technical outage that lasted for a couple of hours.

TikTok’s support account on Twitter confirmed the problems in a tweet and later informed about the operations returning to normal.

More than 40,000 users reported problems on DownDetector at one point.

According to monitoring site DownDetector, most of the user-reported issues (70%) were related to videos not loading.

Another 25% of users said they had problems logging in and 5% of issues reported were related to uploading videos, it added.

Many TikTok users took to Twitter complaining about the downtime using the #tiktokdown.

 

TikTok, owned by Chinese internet giant ByteDance,  last week announced that it would expand the maximum video length for all users, from 60 seconds to three minutes.
