Encrypted messaging app Signal saw a significant surge in new users signing up for its platform after Elon Musk, tweeted to his 41.5 million followers to use Signal and apparently shun WhatsApp.
“Verification codes are currently delayed across several providers because so many new people are trying to join Signal right now (we can barely register our excitement). We are working with carriers to resolve this as quickly as possible. Hang in there,” Signal tweeted.
