  • AkashGvpta Akash (@AkashGvpta) reported

    @EdB_SP @signalapp I guess they started doing that recently to let the new users know that their friends are joining, which might help in making them stay.

  • dotsdl David Dotson (@dotsdl) reported

    @jdetle @signalapp Or is their donation mechanism broken?

  • SimonB1905 SB (@SimonB1905) reported

    @rtinhk @signalapp I would pay for a secure well managed service which we can depend upon. hopefully the many will now realise that these services are expensive and needs funding one way or another...

  • CodeAlright Code Alright (@CodeAlright) reported

    @FullStackFool @signalapp @Tlegram laughs in background It did have outrages but didn't take more than 10 mins to fix.

  • shryasbhurat Shryas Bhurat (@shryasbhurat) reported

    @signalapp Nobody, literally NOBODY, has ever designed a system that can gain 40 million users within a matter of days and not have issues. Take your time, we'll be here waiting @signalapp

  • FactsRhony RhonyFacts (@FactsRhony) reported

    @Tejas_Auro @signalapp "that shall only last if such issues in the initial days doesnt happen...." "Do not let me down" Is entitlement the new trend ?

  • MichaelWhite_94 Michael White (@MichaelWhite_94) reported

    ******* @signalapp is down.

  • jumpcutking Justin K Kazmierczak (@jumpcutking) reported

    @signalapp Still having message sending issues... I don’t know what to do. 😭

  • atx_bites Shveta Moller (@atx_bites) reported

    @signalapp We’ve been using you guys since the very beginning. Hope you can fix the capacity soon. I can’t send messages.

  • ElUrielNogal lǝıɹnogal (@ElUrielNogal) reported

    @CShezz @signalapp Seems Signal is down 😥 I have same issues

  • pathakamit88 Amit Kumar Pathak (@pathakamit88) reported

    @signalapp getting 503 service unavailable while sending a message.

  • theramiyer Ram Iyer (@theramiyer) reported

    @ChoudharyRaqib @signalapp Signal is run by a small non-profit. Nobody expected WhatsApp to make this blunder and millions to switch within a day. @signalapp isn’t backed by big tech firms that want your data in return for free service. Watch your tone, and donate so they can scale.

  • ryanisnan ryanisnan (@ryanisnan) reported

    If anyone at @signalapp SRE needs help evaluating an architecture, identifying a root cause, or scaling the service, give me a ping!

  • MaxKaminCross Max Kamin-Cross (@MaxKaminCross) reported

    @le_roux_nicolas @mer__edith @signalapp Exactly that :D gotta go track down my credit card, brb!

  • deetothab deetothab (@deetothab) reported

    What’s the service status page for @signalapp ? Me thinks red across the board

  • rajvirsingh85 Rajvir Singh (@rajvirsingh85) reported

    @signalapp Please do fix the app as soon as you can. My girlfriend is abroad and I don’t use whatsapp anymore. This was the only way we communicated. :(

  • ashusharma1512 amit kumar (@ashusharma1512) reported

    @signalapp I could not chat with my gf last night due to you service error

  • EmilyCaminiti Emily Caminiti 🌹 (@EmilyCaminiti) reported

    Learning that Elon Musk is the reason I can’t message any of my friends on our Signal threads @signalapp, please fix this.

  • mjshilly Mike Shilly (@mjshilly) reported

    @signalapp My IT department says to turn it off and back on.. . Should fix all the issues.

  • mikeym0p Michael (@mikeym0p) reported

    @JnglstTICAL @signalapp They're essentially a public service, I don't think 'big leagues' is on the radar.

  • BHUJANG20743296 bhujanga rao (@BHUJANG20743296) reported

    @signalapp Add chat wallpapers and custom themes for signal. Fix bugs for easy messaging. Server down now.

  • thejokercity7 Joker (@thejokercity7) reported

    @signalapp They did not know how to take advantage of this opportunity, more than 10 hours without being able to use the service... unfortunate

  • berges Berges (@berges) reported

    The best thing @elonmusk could probably consider doing? Donating to @signalapp so that their servers don’t go down again.

  • moghalsaif_ Moghal Saif (@moghalsaif_) reported

    Everyone is complaining about how @signalapp is not working. See @signalapp is a NON PROFITABLE COMPANY , not alot of employees work there And because a sudden wave of new user have popped up how do you think they can keep up. Be kind and donate to @signalapp

  • guruaswathg Guru Aswath (@guruaswathg) reported

    It's been 9 hours since signal down @signalapp @moxie Any updates ? , #Signaldown

  • Mike_OntheLam Mike (bitcoin is resistance) (@Mike_OntheLam) reported

    @Professor_BTC @signalapp That was a joke. After Elon said to check out signal, stupid Robinhood traders bought the stock of another company called signal. Drove their price up crazy high. It came vack down but is still worth way more. Stupid artificial stock market.

  • EugeniaAbdey Eugenia Abdey (@EugeniaAbdey) reported from Paddington, England

    @signalapp Oh it has been 9 hrs? Guess a usage spike caused it. Recently lots of HongKongers has switched from WhatsApp to Signal (& Fb to Mewe) amid privacy issues. This could be disappointing if... wish you a smooth fix .
