Facebook, Instagram and Tinder were all down this morning and the Twitter reaction was great
Thank God most people were asleep for the crisis.
A drama swept the world wide web this morning as Facebook, Tinder and Instagram were all down for around 40 minutes.
Yeah, 40 minutes doesn't seem very significant, but it was a testing time for social media lovers all over the planet.
Thankfully Twitter wasn't affected by the outage, and these people's reactions were great.
Facebook, Instagram and Tinder down. If Twitter goes down too people will have to actually start talking to each other...... #nooooooooo

Facebook, Instagram, and Tinder are all down, so save your battery and just awkwardly stare at your palm to avoid talking to loved ones.

Facebook down = people must talk to each other or read. Tinder down = people must hit on strangers in the street.
