These 22 internet down memes from last night will shame you into spending less time online

Rumour has it that 18-year-olds learnt how to work iMessage last night

Yesterday the world plummeted into total darkness as we saw Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp all go down right before our very eyes. It was pure carnage. 16-year-olds found themselves trying to navigate iMessage for the very first time and uni students tried to post boomerangs of their glasses clinking but were tragically unable to do so. And, maybe this is worst of all, our mums weren’t able to share missing pet pictures of dogs from different counties in the UK onto their Facebook. In short: it was hell.

In this time of crisis, many of us swarmed over to Twitter to express ourselves the best way we know how – through memes. Here’s a collection of the best internet down memes from last night:
