O2 network outages in the UK cause hilarious reactions on Twitter

Mobile network O2 is investigating a technical fault that has left thousands of its mobile customers unable to use data to get online.

UK customers have reported not being able to access the internet and other services on the network, and it has also affected Sky, Tesco and Giffgaff, whose networks use O2 services.

Luckily, O2 users managed to see the bright side of the situation and made some hilarious jokes.
