TikTok says it has fixed a technical issue that left some users unable to access the video-sharing app for around four hours.

According to Down Detector, a website that monitors outage issues, there were more than 7,000 reports of problems from about 11:30 GMT (06:30 ET) today.

An agent for the Chinese social network confirmed the problem had been fixed shortly after 15:30 GMT (10:30 ET) but did not reveal the cause.

‘A small number of users had an issue with the TikTok app earlier which has now been resolved,’

Earlier, frustrated TikTok users took to Twitter to complain about the outage, with some complaining that their videos were not showing.
