Popular social messaging platform WhatsApp was temporarily down for users across the globe. According to a report, many users jumped over to social media to vent their frustration, and the outage was detected by an independent website called DownDetector.
The issue had reportedly been spotted on Friday morning in different parts of the world, and we wait for official word from the company on the seeming malfunction.
The popular social messaging app is working again in some regions. Not before it triggered a social media storm.
Twitter dutifully registered people’s panic.
