YouTube appears to be experiencing issues today after a site-wide global outage this afternoon. We were first alerted to the issues while trying to upload a video to the TweakTown channel about 45 minutes ago. At first, the videos manager page was down and a few minutes later the entire site was unreachable.

When visiting the site, users were prompted with a 502 error which translates into "the server is broken". The full error reads "502. That's an error. The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request. Please try again in 30 seconds. That's all we know". We have confirmed that YouTube was not displaying in the US nor in Taipei, Taiwan. As of this posting, YouTube appears to be back up, but issues could still arise throughout the day.
