Gmail Down for Some Users

Now might be a good time to get out of the office—or call it a day. Some Gmail users are having difficulty accessing their email on Google’s hugely popular service. Gmail confirmed the technical difficulties on its Twitter feed, giving an update as of 1:31 EST that said the service “should be back for some of you already, and will be back for everyone soon.” Google issued a statement saying less than 2 percent of its users worldwide had been affected by the glitch, though it’s not entirely clear when the issue will be resolved or how many people are tearing their hair out because they can’t Gchat.
