One user tweeted a map of outage hot spots around the world, supplied by downdetector.

YouTube acknowledged the outage on Twitter and said it was working to fix the problem.

Cengiz waits for him outside for four hours, but he never comes out and is told by consulate staff that he left out a back door. The Saudi government, it said, would shield the prince by blaming an intelligence official for the botched operation.

YouTube chief executive Susan Wojcicki also tweeted her own apology, saying "sorry to everyone who was impacted" and thanking the teams who resolved the issue. "We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated", Team YouTube posted. Attempts to visit individual channels on the website returned "500 Internal Server Error" messages.

The online video streaming service YouTube is up and running again after an outage lasting nearly two hours.

The global outage of YouTube comes a day after Twitter users, particularly iOS users, went into a frenzy for about an hour, when the app began streaming notifications in a cryptic series of alphanumeric characters.
