Have you heard of Whatsapp’s new feature? No? Poor you. Whatsapp has now included a latest feature (blue double tick) that tells you that your message has been read by the receiver, as if the “Last Seen” feature wasn’t enough for the users.
It was only earlier this year when Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook would acquire Whatsapp for US$19 billion. Mind you, Facebook, arguably the most popular social network, was criticized heavily by Edward Snowden for its poor online security.
People were already annoyed by the “Last Seen” feature but with the addition of the “Blue Tick”, their annoyance has gone to a whole new level. How did the Twitterati react to this news? Let’s find out.
Baby Baby. Yes Mama. Will You Ignore Me? No Mama. #ThankYouWhatsapp
WhatsApp has now introduced the new dreaded “blue tick” feature, making it even harder to ignore people than ever before.

Who’s the boss b***hes?
The Whatsapp’s new blue tick feature is just a gentle reminder from Zuckerberg to all the users about who owns Whatsapp now.

We agree, Whatsapp should have warned the Royal Twitterati before deciding to update it all by itself!
Whatsapp didn’t even ask us to update before they applied this new blue tick feature! #thiswillcausedrama

Some guys will never change. Anos – 1 Whatsapp – 0
Was never bothered by ‘last seen turn off’ feature, now not bothered by colours of tick on Whatsapp. I’ll ignore someone if I want to.

Hope is not lost though…
After a few months #WhatsApp will come with an option where you can switch off the blue tick feature. That’s how they roll.

Or maybe it’s high time to stop ignoring others… #JustSaying
The ‘blue double tick’ feature on WhatsApp is highly annoying. Time to deactivate. #WhatsAppsucks
