SNAPCHAT IS DOWN across the world.

Users attempting to log into the picture and video sharing social media platform have been met with a “could not refresh” message.

The company has said that it is currently working on a fix and hopes to get users back up and running as soon as possible – although this message was issued more than six hours ago.

Currently most of its features seem to be broken, with users unable to send pictures or log in.

It is unclear exactly how long the problem has been persisting, although difficulties have been reported since early this morning.

Users have taken to Twitter to express their frustration at being unable to access the service.

Website Down Detector has been reporting difficulties on the website throughout this week, although most of these have been fixed within a few hours.
