Netflix Goes Down. Twitter Blows Up.


New York (CNN) — Netflix experienced a massive outage Saturday (Oct. 1).

Issues began just before 3 p.m. Eastern and lasted about three hours.

And during the outage, users took to Twitter to air their complaints. ¬†Downdetector, which monitors outage complaints online — reported more than 13,000 posts from users all over the world Saturday afternoon.

It was problematic timing for the streaming service, which posted a slate of new movies and TV shows on Saturday — including a few crowd favorites like “A Cinderella Story,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Titanic,” and “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.”

Just before 6 p.m., the company announced the issues were resolved.
