Users around the Web are reporting problems with Snapchat. Indeed, we aren’t able to send raunchy images to any of our friends either.

Downdetector reports the issues started popping up around 11:42AM ET. While we can log into the app, we aren’t able to send snaps. Also, stories aren’t refreshing, so we have no idea how to find out what’s happening in our friends’ lives

We’ve contacted Snapchat for more information and will update this post when we hear back.

Update: Snapchat says the outage lasted about 45 minutes and the issues should be resolved. Carry on, millenials.
