Update: Slack started seeing “signs of improvement” and many users can now begin using the platform. They are still monitoring the situation. Our original story follows.
Time to call it: Slack is down for some users, and we can all go home.
You might want to check with your boss on the second part, but the first bit holds true.
According to Slack and Down Detector, the communication platform many of us use for work stopped loading for some users around 9:25 est on Tuesday morning. (Full disclosure: Downdetector is owned by Mashable’s parent company, ZiffDavis.)
“We’re investigating the issue where Slack is not loading for some users,” the platform said. “We’re looking into the cause and will provide more information as soon as it’s available.”
Here’s hoping Slack figures it out before the work day begins in full — or it crashes, and we all get the day off. What a start to the week.
