    13 Funny/Shady Tweets Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Liked During The Facebook And Instagram Outage

    Jack woke up this morning and chose violence.

    As you surely know by now, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are all down. They've been offline for six hours and counting due to an apparent server configuration issue.

    Meanwhile, over at Twitter, which has (mostly) been working just fine today, CEO Jack Dorsey has been tweeting — and liking some funny and shady tweets — about his competitors' misfortune.

    It started this morning, when Jack inquired about the cost of the Facebook.com domain, which appeared to have been listed for sale.

    And he continued by suggesting people use Signal, an encrypted instant messaging service, instead of WhatsApp.

    13. And finally, he also liked this tweet, which, while not shady and definitely not funny, underscores the effect today's outage could have on small businesses that rely on the platforms for advertising:

    If you think WhatsApp and Facebook being down is no big deal, you're definitely not running a small business in an emerging market!
