(CNN) Beginning just before 3 pm ET, users took to Twitter to air their complaints. Downdetector — which monitors outage complaints online — reported more than 7,000 posts from users all over the world at the peak of the outage Saturday afternoon.

It was problematic timing for the streaming service, which posted a slate of new movies and TV shows on Saturday — including a few crowd favorites like “A Cinderella Story,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Titanic,” and “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.”


So, Twitter lit up with users venting their frustrations.

Netflix (NFLX, Tech30) acknowledged the issue at about 3:30 pm. The company posted on its customer service Twitter account, saying “we are aware of streaming issues and we are working quickly to solve them.”

Netflix is down on a rainy Saturday afternoon.

Thank you, Twitter, for confirming that @Netflix is down and that it’s just not me. How will I binge watch now?! D;
