The Verge magazine is also offline, as indicated above
. In addition, the sites of newspapers such as New York Times, Financial Times, Spectator, Guardian and television networks such as Cnn Spectator are also offline. Even Twitter, in reality, seems to have some problems (for this reason we cannot share in the tweet news).
Breaking: the internet. Huge parts of the web are currently offline, including Reddit, Twitch, and (regrettably) The Verge. We'll keep you posted 👍— The Verge (@verge) June 8, 2021
Fastly Status, a popular CDN provider, appears to be to blame: a glitch appears to be to blame, according to the Financial Times product manager. Fastly’s page states, “We are currently investigating the potential performance impact with our CDN services”; in addition, the site also allows us to see which servers in the various regions of the world they are having problems.
