Periscope — the app that allows people to livestream a video feed to the public — may have crashed in the midst of attacks in Paris, France.
Reports coming through Twitter indicated the app was functioning up until approximately 6:40 p.m. EST.
But then people began seeing with a "loading error" message when they open their live feed.
Here's what it looked like:

But earlier in the evening, at 6:14 p.m. EST, the feed was filled with streams available for viewing.

My periscope shut down too just 5 or 6 minutes ago. I was watching the events taking place in Paris. It's all of us. https://t.co/7sq36ikLSm— ★Showing_Off★ (@Araya_Hope____) November 13, 2015
