In case you missed it, Facebook and all the services that fall under it, like Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp, are experiencing a massive outage.
That means no Insta selfies, no Facebook status updates, and no awkward family group chats through WhatsApp. Although, that last one might be a good thing.
Twitter is still alive and well as of Monday afternoon, and people have stormed it with hilarious tweets in relation to the great Facebook outage of October 2021.

Some are suggesting the outage has to do with an interview that aired on Sunday night on the program 60 Minutes.
Facebook and Instagram are both down worldwide one day after a damning “60 Minutes” segment that featured former Facebook product manager Frances Haugen taking the company’s awfulness to task.

Have you seen the show Squid Game, by the way? It’s really good.
Only Twitter and Telegram made it to the 2nd game.

The folks over at Messenger seem to think the cosmos has something to do with it.

There is currently no word on when services will be restored, but you can bet that Twitter doesn’t mind one bit.
hello literally everyone
