‘Hello literally everyone’: Twitter engages in hilarious thread with WhatsApp, IG after global outage
In the middle of the global outage of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram, social media users have made a beeline to Twitter to create funny memes and even share their thoughts on the matter. The latest one in the saga was added by Twitter itself when the social media giant took to its official handle soon to greet users. “Hello literally everyone,” the tweet, which had a subtle hint at the ongoing outage, read.
What ensued is a hilarious conversation among Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram, McDonald’s, Burger King, Reddit, Truecaller, and Xbox – all from their official Twitter handles, among other prominent platforms and applications.
To Twitter’s greeting tweet, WhatsApp replied “hello.” The thread soon saw the addition of McDonald’s whose reply read, “Hi what can I get u.” Twitter, which is filled with memes made by users, said, “59.6 million nuggets for my friends.”
