Whatsapp is down. A billion people look up from their phones for the first time in 7 years. Everything seems so modern.

WhatsApp was down for a few hours. Estranged couples reunited, families watched TV together and people realised that necks can move upwards.

Whatsapp is down and I want to update my Whatsapp status that ‘Whatsapp is down’ but I cannot because Whatsapp is down 🙁
A moment of silence to all people who reinstalled the app before checking on Twitter. #whatsappdown

We live in a world where temporary lack of access to Whatsapp makes the news. Permenant lack of access to clean water doesn’t #whatsappdown

The whole world has the same problem at the same time.
