Wikipedia down or unavailable: What is the reason?

Famous online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, is having some kind of problem. The Wikipedia site has stopped operating. I just tried to access the site but could not do so. At first, I thought that it was a problem in my PC but then I saw the news of Wikipedia website down. Many users tried to access the site but failed. At this moment, numerous Twitter messages are coming in saying the site is down. Some say the English language version is not operating while others are saying that the other language version of the site is not working either. News reports also started to come out but no one could specify the reason behind Wikipedia’s shut down. We will give you the latest information as soon as we get.

Wikipedia is one of the most popular and widely visited websites in the world. For a long time, the website has been providing crucial information to people on a wide range of subjects. The main feature of Wikipedia is that all the information on this website are written by common people. For this reason, it has been severely criticized by many around the world.
