#WhatsAppDown: Turmoil hits thousands of users as chat connections fail

However, several users on Facebook and Twitter from countries including United States and some African nations too have claimed that the messaging service is not working for them. This feature has been rolling out to all smartphones using WhatsApp.

There has been no official word from the company on the outage or how many users were affected. Many panicked because they were unsure whether it was a local problem, an issue with their phone or the entire nation.
