Slack is down, so enjoy your three-day weekend

TechCrunch TechCrunch 10/06/2016 Devin Coldewey

Chat and collaboration app Slack is experiencing serious outages today, but we’re not sure of the nature or extent of the disaster, because is also inaccessible! What? This is like a fire station burning down!

Slack did tweet that there are “connectivity issues for some teams,” hilariously accompanied by a smiling Slack app icon saying “everything’s good under the hood, hoss!”

One TC staffer who was able to access the service found that it gave a less mixed assessment of the situation:

Slack’s web servers are being overwhelmed at the moment and we’re working to restore full capacity and get everyone back to using Slack. API requests may respond in error and chat may behave quite slowly in the meantime.

We’re used to this stuff happening, so we’ll be on IRC (#techcrunch on Esper) if you need us.
