The World has been thrown into chaos because people’s social media platforms of choice have been mysteriously down since early Monday morning, many social media starved individuals are turning to…Twitter. The Mad Max wasteland of hate and despair people only venture into to sling tweet jabs at each other or virtues signal themselves. No this isn’t an invasion that is causing the social media blackout, but Twitter is reaping the benefits.
Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram have been down for the entire day and the communications departments from each of the digital giants – all property of the Facebook, Inc holding company – have conceded that they haven’t quite gotten to grips with the server crash.
Via it’s Twitter account, WhatApp said that they are working hard to resolve the issue that is currently preventing millions of users from communicating with friends, families and colleagues:
“We’re aware that some people are experiencing issues with WhatsApp at the moment. We’re working to get things back to normal and will send an update here as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience!”
Instagram Comms tweeted that they are having some trouble themselves, also failing to explain the cause of the crash:
“Instagram and friends are having a little bit of a hard time right now, and you may be having issues using them. Bear with us, we’re on it!”
Facebook’s spokesperson Andy Stone also turned to Twitter to communicate the challenges facing the social media empire’s founding platform.
“WE’RE AWARE THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE HAVING TROUBLE ACCESSING OUR APPS AND PRODUCTS. WE’RE WORKING TO GET THINGS BACK TO NORMAL AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE, AND WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE,” HE SAID.
Now that everyone is either on Twitter or enjoying the silence of notifications on their phones we can all wonder the one question on everyone’s minds: “Do I remember my MySpace password?”
All social media platforms have been restored as of late Monday night.
