WhatsApp’s messenger service is down in many countries around the globe, with Europe and both American continents experiencing the worst outages.
According to the DownDetector website, the worst-hit are Brazil, the Netherlands, the US, the UK, Switzerland and Italy.
As is usual in situations like this, the WhatsApp crowd went straight on Twitter to post ironic comments.
“WhatsApp users around the world are unable to access the service. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to fix the issue as soon as possible,” WhatsApp spokesman said, as cited by the Independent.
