The majority of Reddit outages are due to small glitches that see Reddit down for only a couple of minutes, as such it’s very unlikely to be due to maintenance and more likely some sort of server restart. If their operations run with zero downtime for router management, then you can put short lived problems down to glitches and high demand.
