[Updated] Tumblr down or not working? You’re not alone

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on February 11, 2020) follows:

Is Tumblr down, not working? Well, that’s what the latest user reports on Twitter and Downdetector – a service that gives a realtime overview of outages and other issues – reflects.

Users basically report that Tumblr is down and celebrity accounts – like that of Taylor Swift – are showing as in they’ve been deactivated. Here are some reports:

What happened to your tumblr Taylor ??? @taylorswift13 @taylornation13

what happened to taylor swift’s tumblr?? are we getting reputation 2.0 BITCH IM DOWN FOR IT

Taylor Swift’s account’s status

Before fan freakout, here’s what’s actually happening. It’s apparently Tumblr that is encountering outage issues in general, because of which certain celebrity accounts are conveying they’ve been deactivated.

#tumblr is down and people are saying various celebrities accounts have been disappearing… Is this when Tumblr just evicts us all? They couldn’t bring back a few accounts so they are throwing out the whole lot and starting anew? Anyway it will be chaotic when it comes back on!

Taylor can still be tagged in photos and tumblr is simply down in general – it’s not only Taylor’s profile. Don’t freak out!

you guys got me all scared thinking there was some horrible drama and taylor literally deleted her tumblr but it turns out tumblr is just down Y’ALL ARE THE WORST
