Outage

Trouble with connectivity and other services

Issue summary:
On December 22, 2021 from 4:20 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. PST, a small percentage of customers experienced trouble sending and editing messages, loading threads, uploading files, and more.

This was the result of an outage affecting one of our service providers; trouble ceased once they reestablished services.

Subsequently, we discovered some bot-generated messages didn't reach our databases, leading to unrecoverable message failures. We're investigating ways to prevent this from occurring in the future.
