Youtube Went Down for Millions Around the World
heavy.com ^ | 10/17/18 | Stephanie Dube Dwilson

Users worldwide reported that YouTube was down for many people for at least an hour on Tuesday night, October 16. The reason is not yet known, but reports came in fast worldwide. This is unusual for one of the most popular websites in the world. So far, YouTube hasn’t issued an official statement about what happened except to note that they are working on the problem and to later note that it was fixed. Although the site may have occasionally had brief issues in the past, being down this long is very rare. Some regions are reporting that the site is beginning to start working correctly again as of about 10 p.m. Eastern, but others were still having issues. By 11 p.m. Eastern, YouTube had reported that the problem was resolved, without providing an explanation. By 1:30 a.m., YouTube was still responding to earlier tweets, explaining the problem was fixed, and offering advice to those with YouTube TV who felt they should get some kind of refund. It appears the site was down for about 90 minutes.

Youtube Won’t let Tucker Carlson videos play, Q Anon videos play, Sean Hannity videos play. or Las Vegas shooting videos play.

Probably had to have a downtown to purge more conservative videos and other points of view the least common denominator at google will not allow.

The most obvious answer is that it was related to the co-incident root cert changeover and someone vital internal system was not accounted for when that occurred.

YouTube not being available is not a crisis of any sort.

Funny, but. . .

This is how they are trying to conceal the truth, prevent the great awakening, and steal the. election.

This censorship is like having the IRS audit all the “Tea Party” groups.

They want to shut diwn the opponent prior to the election, the midterms here.

Some truth breaking on Vegas shooting and out there, they can’t have that, and they have been trying everything to shut down Q Anon, all for a LARP, if that doesn’t tell people it isn’t a LARP, nothing will.

Unless that's how you make your living. Then it's a real crisis and millions make their living off YouTube patronage.

People had to wait before they could self-install their new bathtubs . . . well, most of them ended up calling a professional after they found they were in over their heads.

if you know anything about the 2016 election, it was an information war.

So yes, youtube being down is a crisis because it keeps the true information from getting out and leaves us with the BS they show us on the Tv news, the real fake news.
