Update: Some of these sites are now accessible again. On its status page, Fastly said “The issue has been identified and a fix is being implemented.”
A bunch of websites are unaccessible right now, including Reddit, Twitch, Amazon UK, and Paypal. All of these sites are showing some kind of connection failure.
Basically, half of the internet is down. But thankfully, our site is up (jinx)

Fastly edge platform is having problems, which means a big part of the internet is having problems. This includes Twitter. Even https://t.co/DPssWnrDVs itself is unavailable in many locations. pic.twitter.com/bKpeWrp4xt

Down Detector, a website that tracks outages tells me that Twitter, CNN, NYT, Twitter, Hulu, and Target websites are also down.
The product manager at the Financial Times noted that, Fastly, a CDN provider, is having a massive outage. We’ll keep an eye on for more details.
