Many Snapchat users are facing their worst nightmare today: A deluge of uplifting notifications, but no new photographs or videos to look at.
A quick search for ‘Snapchat Notifications‘ on Twitter reveals an alarming number of people who are experiencing the problem, and have subsequently reacted with an understandable mix of confusion and irritation. `

Anyone else getting notifications saying someone’s sent them a snapchat then when you go on it there’s nothing there?!?!
