Outage tracker Downdetector, too, showed a massive spike in outages at around this time.

However, the issue was restored within minutes but the memes, reactions and trolls for the global outage didn’t. It is reported that services were restored around 11 : 42 Indian standard time. The official twitter account of Whatsapp came up with a tweet at 12 : 11 AM of Saturday, writing “Thanks for your patience, that was a long 45 minutes but we are back! #WhatsAppDown” whereas Instagram, at 12 : 38 AM posted a tweet saying “Some people were having issues with their Instagram accounts earlier, but we’re back now. The issue’s been fixed and we’re sorry for the trouble. #instagramdown”

Check out their tweets below :

Meanwhile Signal app which identifies itself as a better messaging app than Whatsapp with better user privacy and security, took a dig at Whatsapp downtime and wrote “Signal registrations are through the roof; welcome everyone! Solidarity to the folks working on the WhatsApp outage. People outside of the tech industry will never understand how weird it sounds when someone says that they are “looking forward to some weekend downtime.”
