Seriously now, I use whatsapp extensively with clients and suppliers ... this is mayor PITA .... I wonder if they've been victim of an attack of some sort?

They blew up their routing (it was an own goal). They pulled all their BGP routes and it made everything unreachable, including their internal communications apps and the card key system on the data centers.

They are back, mostly.

It will take time to propagate. But it is coming back. All the BGP announcements are back to normal.
Speaking of which, I seen someone saying that Facebook is the cause to a lot of social media anger, making people more angry with each other and in general. Only caught a snippet, going before Congress I guess.
