Instagram Outage: We Didn’t Do It, Jokes CIA


The outage that caused Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook to stop working properly lasted a whole nine hours. The company explained that it happened due to a routine maintenance procedure that resulted in a bug.

While people expressed their frustration on Twitter with hashtags like #InstagramDown and #FacebookDown, USA’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) banked on humour to lighten the situation.

CIA tweeted that they were also affected by the outage, and joked that they didn’t cause it. They added: “Did you try turning it off and back on again?”


The tweet has gone viral and has been retweeted over 9,000 times.
