Discord's status website said that its platform was experiencing connection issues.

The U.S. company tweeted: "Internet machine broke, our team is turning it on and off again so it should be up very soon!"

The downtime appears to be linked to the temporary loss of some of the internet's most popular services on June 21.

Those trying to access websites such as Omegle, DoorDash, Crunchyroll and Feedly were also affected. They are being met with an error message that blames server issues for the outage.

The backbone of many sites, Cloudflare, is the source of the issue, having suffered a critical incident.
