Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey mocks Facebook over global outage
From SocialTwitter CEO and founder Jack Dorsey also joined the wagon and took a dig at Facebook through an image where it showed that Facebook’s domain is up for sale. Dorsey wrote ‘how much?’ after retweeting that image.
When WhatsApp’s Twitter handle tried to make light of its situation by replying to Twitter’s tweet, Dorsey took that opportunity to mock the Facebook-owned messaging app’s encryption issue. In a reply to WhatsApp, he wrote ‘thought this was supposed to be encrypted…’.
From SocialOther social media platforms weren’t much behind to make the best of the outage.
WhatsApp’s rival messaging app Signal tweeted ‘Signups are way up on Signal (welcome everyone!) We also know what it’s like to work through an outage, and wish the best for the engineers working on bringing back service on other platforms #mondays’. Tumblr, Reddit, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Twitch and many other internet giants also replied to Twitter’s tweet.
According to Facebook, a faulty configuration change led to the outage and it also claims that no user data was compromised during the downtime. In an official blog, the company said ‘Our engineering teams have learned that configuration changes on the backbone routers that coordinate network traffic between our data centres caused issues that interrupted this communication. This disruption of network traffic had a cascading effect on the way our data centres communicate, bringing our services to halt.
