Let's get our old WhatsApp status back!

This petition had 67 supporters


All of a sudden this morning, WhatsApp dissolved all our status updates to replace them with mandatory picture/video updates, that get sent to all your contacts and stay on for 24 hours. With this move, not only has the worth of the written word been diminished, but this Snapchat-ification of WhatsApp is also a clever, if unnecessary, ruse to make us spend more time on the app. And who needs that, right?

We didn't ask for it, we weren't warned, and we weren't unhappy with the older structure. So why fix something that wasn't broken? Let's sign this petition to urge Mark Zuckerberg to bring back the status update as we knew it.
