Incognito Mode to the Rescue

Before it was back up and running again, YouTube, on one of its Twitter handles, said, "We are aware that many of you are having issues accessing YouTube right now – our team is aware and looking into it. We'll update you here as soon as we have more news."

Many users on Twitter also suggested using YouTube in incognito mode while the services were down.
