After the release of “Stranger Things” season four volume 2 on Friday (July 1) morning, Netflix experienced a brief outage. The abrupt breakdown sparked a flurry of memes and jokes that Twitter users enjoyed sharing. A Twitter war broke out on social media sites as millions of followers impatiently awaited the streaming behemoth to fix the technical issue. Additionally, hashtags became popular.
The statement that “Stranger Things” has literally taken the internet by storm won’t be untrue. Loyal followers of the sitcom immediately signed into their Netflix accounts to catch the series premiere. But the site couldn’t handle the sudden influx of visitors.
The platform’s technical team handled the problem immediately, and the site was back online for fantastic watching.
A “Network Error” appeared when Netflix customers attempted to stream the new season, which was undoubtedly unwelcome for many. A netizen posted on social media, saying, “You guys need to calm down a bit, bro! Bruh, the instant #StrangerThings4 was launched, Netflix practically crashed. Did the app crash countdown start? (sic)”
Added another Twitter user “Netflix, did we just crash it? @Netflix Please fix yourself. Hashtag: #strangerthings4.”
And someone else posted, “I did not stay up this long for #StrangerThings4 to crash Netflix,”
When “Stranger Things” made its streaming platform debut in 2016, it quickly racked up a sizable fan base. The first seven episodes of Season 4 shattered the record for the biggest ever launch weekend on Netflix, and according to reports, it is already the most popular English-language Netflix season.
The series was created by Matt and Ross Duffer and stars Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Winona Ryder, Gaten Matarazzo, David Harbour, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp, among others.
