WhatsApp is down right now. The service went down a while ago and has been acknowledged by WhatsApp team via twitter. The tweet says that we’re having server issues, will be up shortly. This acknowledgement came around 20:18 GMT on Saturday, Feb 23 2014 and hope it actually takes a short while.
WhatsApp has been in news lately for the popular $19 billion dollar deal. Social media is now ablaze that Facebook brings some jinx to WhatsApp right after buying it 🙂
