Downdetector.com, which monitors online outages in real time, shows that people started reporting the problem around 3 p.m. PT on Sunday, receiving users with messages like “Couldn’t load posts”, “Couldn’t refresh feed and “We’re very sorry, but something went wrong. Please try again” when you visit the app.

“The app is completely broken this time, my feed won’t refresh at all on any of my accounts,” one user wrote on Downdetector.com.
