All the reactions on Twitter about the Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp outage

“Facebook down” trended today with over 500,000 tweets reacting to the event.

Even Instagram and Whatsapp suffered from the blackout.

Facebook’s family of apps, which includes Instagram and Whatsapp, stopped functioning for many users worldwide earlier today. In this day and age when social media apps have become a part of everyone’s lives, it seemed like a bit of a nightmarish experience. But thank god there’s still Twitter. The trending topics “Facebook down” and “Instagram down” generated over a million tweets in total. In a twist of irony, Facebook itself had to take to Twitter to update its users about the outage. At the time of writing, most of the features on the affected apps are up and running. But let’s take a look at all the reactions and jokes stemming from the company’s most severe outage in history.

Facebook confirmed that the issue is not related to a DDoS attack. Maybe they’re right. It must be something else.

Clearly, Twitter users were unaffected by the outage

Twitter’s sudden user surge prompted even greater speculation for another major social media comeback

While some users indulged in some wishful thinking…

Those with businesses surely felt the pinch

For others, the situation was tougher than expected

But at the end of the day, make what you will with this interesting fact
