Slack messages are going twice, reason remains unknown
Over the last few hours, users of popular work collaboration and chat app Slack have reported a weird message repetition issue.
The platform, as the complaints indicate, is either sending messages twice or not sending them at all.
The issue appears to be affecting a large number of users around the world, but there is no official word from Slack yet.
Every message goes two times
In some cases, a sent message is posted twice, while in others it doesn't go at all.

Some users are also witnessing problems in uploading media
Along with the double-posting glitch, some users have also complained about problems while uploading images and reacting to messages with emojis on Slack.
However, as of now, it is not clear if the two issues are associated with the same or different bugs.
Slack's System Status page notes a clear case of outage where 'Degraded service' is affecting multiple features, including messaging, file sharing.
Root cause of the problem remains unknown
Having said that, the root cause of the problem still remains unclear at the moment.
Slack hasn't issued any comment or statement on the matter, and there is no word on when users of the messaging service can expect a fix.
Either way, we expect a fix to come soon, considering more than 10 million people use the platform daily.
