#Blackout: The Best Social Media Reactions

Power outages are so common in Pakistan; they have become a part of daily life. It’s interesting how residents have been forced to accommodate it in their daily schedules. However, it’s unusual for 80 percent of the country to to be deprived of electricity all at once. Darker and grittier than Gotham or Starling city, you’d imagine.

That’s exactly what happened at approximately 11.50pm on Saturday as Baloch separatists blew up a transmission tower in Naseerabad, Balochistan. You can’t possibly expect ‘activists’ on social media to have nothing to say about the worst power failure out of four major ones that Pakistan has experienced this month. No wonder #blackout trended with a vengeance. Let’s let the reactions speak for themselves, shall we?
