Internet giant Tencent’s popular messaging app, WeChat, suffered a large-scale technical mishap on Monday morning.

Many users reported that they could not send out messages from 8 am or browse their friends’ home pages, or connect to the WeChat's web version.

Users in Guangdong, Zhejiang, Shandong, Heilongjiang and Henan provinces, as well as in Beijing, reported difficulties.

At around 11 am, Tencent issued a statement which said that the optical cable failures were to blame.
