A few minutes after Facebook-owned platforms WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram were hit by a major global outage on Monday evening, all the three apps were forced to tweet for updates.
The apps through their respective official Twitter pages updated their users of the abrupt crash that made it to top global trends on Twitter.
In their tweet, they stated that they are working around the clock to resolve the issue and restore access.
"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!" WhatsApp tweet reads.
Similarly, using the hashtag Instagram down, they wrote:
"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!"
On the other hand, Facebook tweeted:
"We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing Facebook app. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience."
