For the first time in a really long time, YouTube went down on Wednesday morning, leaving most of its users in panic and shock.
The happened at about 7:30 a.m. Eastern Time, but appeared to be up and running just 45 minutes later at 8:15 a.m. ET. Of course, many users around the world spend the time ranting and notifying others of the very rare outage. After all, we’ve gotten quite used to Internet services like Twitter, Pinterest, Google Drive and even Facebook going down–but not YouTube.
The last major outage for YouTube was in November 2013, although it did experience a minor disruption in March 2014.
According to Mashable, a source dished that the outage was due to some routine engineering updates and that YouTube was only fully disabled worldwide for no longer than 15 minutes.
