Yesterday, the unthinkable happened: Snapchat — seemingly the only thing keeping millions of teens alive — went down. The effects of this global catastrophe were felt round the world as teens everywhere were forced to make do without immediate access to dancing-burger filters.
Countless devastated teens have reported lost Snapchat streaks in the wake of the Great Snapchat Outage of 2017. If your teen was affected, at least they can take solace in the fact that they are not alone in their despair.
Luckily, for the streakless and forlorn, there’s a way forward. Anyone who thinks their Snapchat streak has been erroneously erased can file for an appeal after 24 hours have passed. (Though Snap hopes to have the majority of them independently restored before the end of the day.)
Please pray for your teen as they go through this tough time.
