WhatsApp crashes temporarily and users freak out
There was panic across the globe on Tuesday night after messaging app WhatsApp experienced a brief outage.
Users were unable to send or receive messages as the service continued to indicate ‘connecting’ with the small wheel showing for most people.
According to DownDetector there were problems across Europe but it appears as though it could be a global problem.
Many users ran to Twitter and Facebook as they struggled to cope. Others reacted hilariously to the news.
