Within minutes, WhatsApp down has become the top trend in India as Twitter was flooded with hilarious tweets about WhatsApp's failure.
Here's how Twitter reacted:
A popular tweet read: "2 mins of silence for those who uninstalled and then installed WhatsApp again #WhatsAppDown".
Another trending tweet was "WhatsApp msg not sent: Step 1: Restart Mobile Data Step 2: Restart phone Step 3: Check #Twitter #WhatsAppDown trending".
A number of memes brought out the creative side of users. A netizen shared a gif of cartoon character, Homer Simpson carrying a board saying 'The End is Near'.
Another user put up a post with pictures of Pakistani politician and former cricketer, Imran Khan smiling with the message "When you use blackberry messenger and aren't affected by whatsapp being down".
The reason for #WhatsAppDown could be an Indian engineer working there. His girl blocked him and he went 'le phir, main block to sab block'
