WhatsApp just added a stories feature to the new update, and nobody is happy about it. Instagram got a lot of flak for copying Snapchat and now, WhatsApp joins the bandwagon. Gone are the days of “Hey there! I’m on WhatsApp” and we’re all crying. We knew 2017 was going to be worse than 2016. At least with Snapchat, our family wouldn’t know what our Saturday night plan looks like. You can’t even put meaningful lyrics to the song you love as your status because WhatsApp wants to be everything we already have. Within minutes, people lost their chill as Twitter exploded with sobs asking to give them back the privilege of using the old WhatsApp. Coping with their disappointment, many jokes and memes were made honoring the older version and criticizing the new one. Here’s some of the hilarious Twitter reactions to WhatsApp update –
1. GET DIVORCED.
Snapchat stories got married to instagram memories and exactly after nine months here comes whatsapp status stories.

2. Times are a changin’
Next time a kid asks for a bedtime story, sign them up with Snapchat, Instagram, facebook, WhatsApp

4. Yes Mark.
It may be OK for you to wear same t-shirt everyday but it's too boring for us to enjoy same feature across all SM platforms. #WhatsApp
