Grindr went offline last night, prompting an international outcry.
Users in the U.S., Europe, and Australia flew into a panic last night when the hookup app suffered a global outage around 11 PM.
Naturally, they took to Twitter to voice their outage.

I FINALLY get a cute guy to hit me up on Grindr. Meaning, he saw my face, didn’t block me, and thought I was cute.
Only for this bitch to be down. My luck is amazing. ???? pic.twitter.com/O7FkzPXzj5

It’s unclear what caused the site to go down.
Thankfully, the outage was short and the app was back up and running within an hour or so. Although it’s always sad to think about how many potential marriages were thwarted as a result of the blackout.
