Social network platform, WhatsApp, experienced a downtime for some hours on Sunday.

Users were unable to post pictures, videos and other media files on the platform. Also users were not able to view or post on their WhatsApp statuses.

Some WhatsApp users took to Twitter to vent their anger, with the hashtag WhatsAppDown, and express their displeasure while others trolled the messaging app. Here are a few tweets:



According to a report on Independent UK, WhatsApp, owned by Facebook, is the worst-hit platform for internet shutdowns.

Sunday’s is the latest in a series of major downtime experienced by the Facebook-owned app with one in March last year cutting off its users for nearly an entire day.

Facebook is yet to release an official statement as the downtime lasted for close to three hours.
