Users in America and Europe have reported problems when trying to log in or use TikTok, Spotify and Pinterest. While for TikTok and Pinterest there are troubles with logging in, Spotify has problems with streaming music, and disappointed users are flooding Twitter to complain about their non-working apps.
The problems are mainly reported in the US, the UK and some parts of Europe.
For some, these mobile apps are an important way to entertain themselves during the coronavirus lockdown.
However, some see a silver lining.
So happy #tiktokdown hopefully the posts on my other social media won’t be tiktok posts tomorrow. If I wanted to see your tiktoks, I’d join tiktok.— ManchesterM (@manchesterlady1) May 6, 2020
TikTok is a Chinese-based app for short amusing videos with sound, while Spotify is a service for streaming music, and Pinterest is a pinboard-style photo-sharing website. The three apps have only become more popular during the coronavirus lockdown, especially TikTok, where new viral challenges are posted daily.
