There was panic across the world after WhatsApp servers went down in many countries, media reports suggest. People were unable to send messages to one another as the service was interrupted for most people. Immediately after checking with their friends to see if WhatsApp was out of action people went straight to Twitter to confirm whether it was true or not. Users in India, Singapore, Mozambique, Vietnam, and Iraq are reporting that they could not access the service. WhatsApp’s official Twitter channels have not said anything about the outage yet – in fact the WhatsApp Status account hasn’t tweeted since February 2014 while the main WhatsApp Twitter account hasn’t been updated since August 2016.
