Trust Nigerians on Twitter to make fun out of everything, they did again yesterday as WhatsApp crashed worldwide except in Nigeria.
Yesterday January 22, 2019, WhatsApp owned by Facebook crashed worldwide for a few hours and this caused a frenzy on social media as users of the platform began to panic.
The crash somehow didn’t by any means affect the messaging platform users in Nigeria which made many Nigerians take to Twitter to share hilarious memes and tweets about it.
The last time the shutdown happened was in November 2018. At the moment the issue has been reported from around the world, except Nigeria of course.
See some hilarious tweets below,

Nigeria WhatsApp is operating on a very high level encryption, reason why the app didn’t crash in Nigeria. In summary Nigeria is the most secured cyberspace in the world.

It is official, Nigeria has been excluded from the world. Yes #WhatsApp crashed all over the world and Nigeria was not affected. We are now the most powerful country in the world. What a time to be alive.

It is time they brought the headquarter of #WhatsApp to Nigeria. We have what it takes to keep it function when it will crash in other places.
