One user wrote: ‘The way I RAN to Twitter to see if TikTok was down for everyone else too.’

Another added: ‘ i’ve never felt like i was an addict until i immediately opened twitter the second tiktok wasn’t working for me.’ 

And one joked: ‘Me realising my life evolves around tiktok now it’s down.’

The outage will come as bad news to many youngsters, with recent research revealing that Britons aged 14 to 24 spend an average of 57 minutes a day watching TikTok – more than they spend watching traditional TV. 

Ofcom found the age group now spend less than an hour (53 minutes) a day watching traditional TV channels, down two-thirds in ten years.

By contrast, the over-65s are still tuning in to scheduled TV for five hours and 50 minutes on average per day – slightly up on a decade earlier.
