Messenging app WhatsApp is operating again after a brief global outage.

Users across the world were unable to send messages due to a server that went down.

Social media users saw the lighter side of things and took to Twitter share memes.

The ‘WhatsApp down’ hashtag is now trending.

WhatsApp is yet to release an official statement on the outage. Meanwhile, people took to Twitter to complain about problems with the messaging service.

“First we open WhatsApp, then we open Twitter to know if #whatsappdown is for everyone,” wrote a Twitter user. “Whatsapp is down, I repeat Whatsapp is down,” tweeted out another user.

Notably, this is not the first time that WhatsApp faced an outage. The Facebook-owned company was down globally early September as well, with users reporting problems accessing the app.

In May, WhatsApp was down for a few hours in all parts of the world including Malaysia to Spain, Germany and some other European countries. Severely affected countries included Belgium, the Netherlands, and Britain.
