News organizations hiccup as Amazon servers malfunction
Several news organizations, including BuzzFeed, Mic and Business Insider, were affected by today's glitch with Amazon Web Services.
Amazon Web Services, one of the largest hosting providers in the world, is experiencing problems in its U.S. East region, which contains many of the servers that news organizations headquartered on the East Coast rely upon.
"We're working as quickly as possible to resolve some issues caused by Amazon Web Services' widespread outage," a spokesperson for BuzzFeed told Poynter.
As of this writing, many of the websites, including all of the ones listed above, appear to be working.
