Video views and accounts on TikTok have mysteriously disappeared from the app.

On Thursday afternoon, TikTok users noticed that the numbers showing likes and views on the videos were all reset. Some users have also reported that their “For You” feeds darken or appear to reset, which means that users no longer see videos recommended by the famous TikTok algorithm.

Down Detector, an Internet outage tracking website, has shown nearly 20,000 reports of users having problems with the application.

TikTok has since acknowledged in a Twitter statement that it is aware of the reported issues and has said it is “working to fix things quickly”.

People have gone to Instagram, Twitter and social media platforms to panic and speculate about what’s going on. Within minutes of the first reports, TikTok has become the # 1 trend on Twitter in the United States.

Discussions about TikTok issues also take place on TikTok itself. Some users have reported seeing swarms of accounts follow live a few minutes apart to share their confusion.

Some users have leveled out the theory that TikTok’s problems indicated that the application had been banned in the United States, which President Donald Trump said this week he was considering as an option to punish China over the coronavirus pandemic . Since March, Trump has called the coronavirus “the Chinese virus” and said that China is “the source” of the pandemic.

TikTok has grown to become a social media power over the past two years, especially among Generation Z teens. Since its global launch in 2017 – and a year later in the United States – TikTok has generated more than two billion downloads worldwide. The app had its most popular quarter ever in the first three months of 2020, when millions of people were blocked to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
