Facebook & Instagram Malfunction and the Internet Reacts - Read the Funny Tweets!
Facebook, Instagram, and Tinder all suffered malfunctions for some time on Tuesday (January 27) and many suspected a hacker was responsible making the sites inaccessible.
“Earlier this evening many people had trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram,” a rep for the companies said (via BBC). “This was not the result of a third-party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems. We moved quickly to fix the problem, and both services are back to 100% for everyone.”
During the outage, users quickly flocked to Twitter to express their displeasure that the sites were down – and there were some pretty funny user responses!

With Facebook and Instagram down this morning, my 7.93km run for a poached eggs on avocado breakfast was a complete waste of time.
