Many members of the social media crowd lamented about their predicament during the Facebook and Instagram outage, switching to other platforms that weren't experiencing any technical difficulties at the time to express their feelings.

As numerous Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp users around the globe found themselves having trouble uploading photos and videos to the social media platforms on 3 July, a legendary US spy agency stepped forward to put its two cents in and to possibly dispel emergent conspiracy theories in a humorous manner.

Using its official Twitter account, the Central Intelligence Agency publicly announced that they weren't the ones responsible for the problem, before offering netizens probably the most popular advice one might get when calling IT support: "Did you try turning it off and back on again?"

​Many social media users seemed to appreciate the agency's sense of humour, responding with jokes and quips of their own.

Some, however, opted instead to remind CIA of some less amusing issues the organisation allegedly is involved in.

Many Twitter users also used this opportunity to quip about their social media platform working just fine amid this breakdown.

And others simply joked about their predicament.
