Twitter became the king of social media when Instagram, Whatsapp and Facebook crashed

All hell broke loose yesterday when social media sites Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram were not loading content for their users.

That's when the OG Twitter came to rescue. Users started complaining about this glitch on Twitter and the hashtags #WhatsAppDown #FacebookDown and #InstagramDown started trending.

This global shutdown had a lot of people scratching their heads, and many turned to Twitter for their daily dose of social media interaction. The result also included some hilarity and proof that people can find the humour in anything.

Back to the stone-age folks!
