WhatsApp goes down globally and causes the most epic social media stir
On Tuesday (26 Jan), unhappy WhatsApp users in Singapore and around the world took to social media when the mobile messenger app unexpectedly went down at 10.14am.
It quickly triggered a flurry of epic reactions on social media as the biggest problem of the morning.

Many users fumbled with their phones, unsure it was spoilt.
Some tried to promote their favourite rival social media apps.
Some tried to speculate the reason for the outage.

Some trolled at our dependence on WhatsApp.
Some used the occasion to do non-related online publicity.
Some could not do their work,
Others were more productive without the messaging app as distraction.
The world is experiencing its high level of employee productivity right now because #whatsappdown

Some came to the brutal realisation that they had no friends.
WhatsApp was back in action in less than an hour.
It was restored around 10.40am, but stayed the trending topic on Twitter and social media.
Thank you for an entertaining morning WhatsApp.
