There’s certainly no love lost between users of the rival social networking websites and we bring you the best of them in our Storify below
When Facebook temporarily crashed this morning millions of users were left panicking without access to their personal data.

The site, which claims to have 1.23bn monthly users, displayed an error message to users who were trying to log on.

Visitors at around 9am UK time were greeted with a message reading “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.”

But on Twitter meanwhile, thousands saw the funny side by creating memes and demonstrating their wit in 140 characters or less.

Even though Mark Zuckerberg’s baby was back online after 20 minutes, #Whenfacebookwasdown was still trending on Twitter into the afternoon.

Users took delight in poking fun at a generation of people who dedicate their lives to the social network and who are seemingly unable to function without it.
