Global Grindr outage leaves whole world in a panic for approximately one hour

Man crying into his phone

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.

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.
