YouTube acknowledged the outage in a tweet at 9:41 p.m. EDT, noting that it affected YouTube, YouTube Music and YouTube TV.

YouTube is finally back online after several people complained on Twitter about broadcasting issues.

For the younger generation at least, there's a few things it can't live without - in particular access to the likes of WhatsApp, Netflix and YouTube.

Some users reported blank website frame instead of the usual homepage.

YouTube tweeted that they apologized for the inconvenience and would keep users updated at 8:41 p.m.

Many users took to Twitter and shared screenshots of internal error 500 message.

Meanwhile, about 80 minutes later, Team YouTube said: "We're back!"

The popular video sharing site is experiencing a major outage, leaving the world without puppy and cat videos and "major fail" clips.

On the YouTube mobile app, users saw the "Error loading / Tap to retry" error message when they attempted to play videos. The company is yet to issue a statement on the reason behind the massive outage.

The current situation with YouTube has invited tons of memes and trolls on Twitter.

YouTube was created in February 2005 by three former PayPal employees who needed a way to share a video with each other.
