  • WhatsApp is back but Twitter can't keep calm

Local experts say that the WhatsApp crash on Friday morning proves that Over-The-Top (OTT) services are not crash proof.

On Friday, Globally recognised instant messaging app experienced a global outage which made it hard to send or receive the message on WhatsApp.

"What's happening? Can't connect even though I have perfectly working wifi #WhatsAppDown", tweets one user. According to various reports, users in Europe, Singapore, the United States, the UK, India and other Asian countries are facing this problem.

The Down Detector website's heat map showed reports were especially common in Europe, although complaints on social media came from people located worldwide.




More details on the nature and cause of the outage weren't immediately available.

WhatsApp is used by more than 1.2 billion people around the world and is a key tool for communications and commerce in many countries.

Thousands of users were forced to switch to other social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook to either report or complain about the glitch. "This issue has been fixed and we apologize for the inconvenience", a spokesperson said.

The Facebook-owned service confirms messages that have been successfully deleted for everyone will be replaced with "This message was deleted" in your recipients' chats.
