Reddit was down on Thursday evening for a number of hours for thousands of users across the globe. It appears that the issue has since been resolved. In a tweet on the Reddit Status account, the site confirmed that the issue had been resolved.
A number of users saw an image (as seen below) which declared that Reddit’s CDN was unable to reach its server, currently. The ‘Front Page of the Internet’ has since resolved the problem internally.
