WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram faced a global outage on Sunday as messages on the services were not being received or sent. The newsfeeds of the social media platforms were not refreshing as well.
The social media apps experienced one of its longest outages in March when some users around the globe faced trouble accessing the apps for more than 24 hours. Now that the apps are back up and working normally, many users have heaved a sigh of relief.
Users on Twitter had various jokes to make about the global outage.

Isn’t funny how twitter never goes down, like Instagram and Facebook servers are terrible.
