If you couldn't send out any Snapchat messages this morning, you weren't alone. While I turned my phone on and off about 6 times and re-installed the app, others turned to Twitter to find out just how widespread the issue was. A tweet from Snapchat Support confirmed that we (and our phones) weren't all going crazy.
Fun fact, you may not have been able to send messages and some pictures, but I learned the hard way that the screenshot notification feature still works.
As of the time of writing, the sending issue appears to be resolved on some devices while others (like my Android device) are sending some messages while failing to pass along others.
