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.

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.
