It was not immediately known what caused the glitches. Reddit did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

Reddit has come into forefront after a social media chatroom on its platform, “Wallstreetbets,” led to a so-called “Reddit rally,” which has helped attract a flood of retail cash into stocks such as GameStop Corp (NYSE:GME), burning hedge funds that had bet against the company and roiling the broader market. WallStreetBets has around 6 million members.
