Is Twitch Down? Server Status Latest News As Streaming Site Stops Working

Twitch is down this evening leaving thousands of streamers and viewers unable to access the platform.

The problems began at around 10:00pm GMT with users reporting issues with the service on social media sites instantly.

Independent outage monitor site Down Detector has seen a surge in reports with over 9000 in the last few minutes.

However, this obviously doesn't track all those many more thousand of players who are not reporting issues or complaining online.

There are also countless users reporting seeing problems on social media sites.

However, Twitch support are yet to address the problems or say how long it might be before service resumes. We'll be sure to update this page as more information becomes available.

(UPDATE 11pm GMT) - The official Twitch support account on Twitter has now acknowledged the issues and as well as providing a statement ensuring fans that they are looking into the problems (presumably as a matter of urgency).

Writing on Twitter the team told fans:

"We are investigating issues with the site not loading correctly. Thank you for your patience."

(UPDATE 11.10pm GMT) - It looks as though reports on Down Detector have started to subside and based on the Twitch server pages, all systems are operational with no reported problems.

Most reported issues appear to be related to chat services, so it could be people are just accepting the fact they can't chat right now.

The official Twitch support account on Twitter has not provided any updates following their initial message, but if the problems have been fixed, then what does it matter.
