The collapse of the services “Facebook”, “Instagram” and “WhatsApp” could have destroyed the world of celebrities, who often use these social networking sites to publish everything related to their lives.
So when these sites began to go out of fashion around the world and Facebook later apologized for it, there were concerns that the prolonged absence might drive some celebrities crazy as they stare at their screens waiting for the sites to come back to life.
The sudden malfunction prompted everyone to switch to the “Twitter” platform as an alternative to communicate with their followers, while the official website welcomed everyone, and said in a tweet: “Welcome everyone literally,” referring to the heavy turnout on the platform in light of the disruption of “Facebook”. The official “WhatsApp” account responded to the “Twitter” tweet with the word: “Hello.”
Stars like Reese Witherspoon, Snoop Dogg, Adele and even Dolly Parton and others have commented mocking the catastrophic outage around the world, with some calling it a pandemic.
Dolly, 75, posted a meme of her as she walked through the salon’s swinging doors commenting: “Everyone took to Twitter today while Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are down.”
While rapper Snoop Dogg encouraged his followers to smoke by tweeting, “There is a malfunction… one turn and be productive.”
After a 4-hour hiatus, actress Catherine Tyldesley searched for the perfect way to unite her followers, deciding to cast her characters in TV series. The actress tweeted, “Five Friends???”, and was quickly overwhelmed with hundreds of answers.
Oh, here we go… now the social is down… 🤔🤔🤔

Jack Dorsey commented on the tweet of someone claiming that the Facebook domain is for sale, saying: “How much?”

We are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and apologize for any inconvenience.”
