July 23, 2021

Zomato tweeted late on Thursday it was "back" after its app went down briefly due to a global outage linked to Akamai, a content distribution network (CDN). As the app went down, users flooded social media sharing hilarious messages about not being able to place their orders, also posting screenshots of the app while it was down.

"Phew, we're back," Zomato shared in an update on its Twitter account, after acknowledging earlier that the app was down. "Our app is down due to a widespread Akamai outage, Our teams are working to ensure all orders placed are delivered asap," it had informed earlier.
