Popular instant messaging platform Whatsapp owned by Facebook reportedly crashed worldwide for a few hours and this caused a frenzy on social media as users began to panic.
The crash somehow didn’t affect Nigerian users and many Nigerians are taking 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.

Why will #WhatsApp not crash when people will be putting all episodes of Jenifa’s Diary on their status… now see what we have caused for the rest of the world Ironically we’re not even affected.
Each time #WhatsApp crashes, it doesn’t affect Nigeria server.
Nigeria is a special country.
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.
Mark, think about it
