Here’s How the World Was Raging Over the Whatsapp Crash On New Years

For millenials, connectivity is no less than religion so unsurprising that as the clock struck twelve and we welcomed year 2016, alternatively, madness ensued with Whatsapp servers crashing leaving the world in mad frenzy. Connecting and disconnecting for a whole hour and eighteen minutes (yes, we counted because, obviously…) people turned to twitter per usual to vent their frustration.

Happy new year, folks.
