LinkedIn is back after a worldwide crash affecting users on both mobile and desktop. The Microsoft-owned social network first started experiencing issues around 2PM ET, and LinkedIn confirmed that things were back to normal at 4:21 PM ET.
The company did not provide a specific reason for the wear, however praising with a smile the cases may have been due to a WandaVision character.
Forgive everyone for breaking it. We are back on track now. Unconfirmed reports indicate that it may have been Agatha.
