Netflix was down for a while today. Twitter was absolutely livid.



Superhero Luke Cage can thank Netflix's engineers for coming to his rescue.

The streaming service was down for more than two hours Saturday, one day after the debut of a live-action series with the Marvel Comics hero.

In a Twitter message posted at about 3:30 p.m. EDT Saturday, Netflix acknowledged it was aware of streaming issues and was working quickly to solve them.

Netflix users had begun complaining on Twitter that the site was down about a half-hour earlier.

Netflix finally got things back up and running, just in time for Saturday binging. 

Some Twitter users were illiterate with rage. 

Others were luckier. 

Some claimed this transgression would be remembered for years to come. 

Many said the release of "Luke Cage" might be responsible.
