Zaka email on WhatsApp/Face Book Shutdown

Dear friend,

As you may have noticed, WhatsApp has been down across the globe for over an hour. The same is with Facebook and Instagram, the platforms with more control and power than most countries.

Though we don't know the exact reasons for that, this outage comes to show us how fragile our daily means of communication may be, things we rely on may leave us disconnected and highly endangered in case of an emergency.

When the disaster hits, we at Zaka Tel Aviv are there to help people so why not use this moment to support the great work we do!?   
Airlines sending me "We're in this together" emails.

Bruh, where were you when my suitcase weighed it 51.50 pounds?

No, from what I gather - there was a config change to BGP that was pushed earlier today. And now their entire internal network is down too, severely hampering the recovery process. They need people to actually go into the physical data centers to revert the changes.
