WhatsApp went down and everyone lost their shit over it
Popular messaging app WhatsApp appeared to go offline around 9pm on Wednesday evening.
People were unable to send or receive messages on the app.
Website Down Detector showed that much of Europe, the United States and South America suffered outages.
When users attempted to send a message, they were faced with the timer symbol rather than the customary ticks of a sent message.
For all those worrying, she probably was trying to reply to you at this instant and she does actually like and is completely not ignoring your messages... probably.
People lost their shit on social media over the drop in service, but thankfully normal service has resumed.
