Want To Crash Your Friend's Whatsapp, Send Them This.

If you actually clicked on this with the intention of doing that, you are a meanie 🙁
Words on tech street via a security researcher  has discovered that there is a way for meanies to crash your Whatsapp
The meanie doing this will need to use the web version of Whatsapp to send a message containing 5,000 emoji to another person. This will completely shut down the app and deleting the message history is the only way to continue using the app after it crashes.

So how did Mr. Indrajet come about this bug, it appears that Whatsapp has a character limit of 6000 words, however, the 5000 emojis is more potent enough to make it crash.
If you are truly a meanie, how about trying it out.

    5000 emojis is easy… simply click like 5different ones, then copy and paste a few times in the same writing box without sending, then copy all and paste a few times again in the same box, keeping repeating and in less than a minute you would have over 5000 emojis.
    please don’t play evil ok.

    The both options is to clear your browser history or delete and reinstall your whatsapp.

    Itdosnt work . i sent 10000 emojis by cut paste but the app did not crash in my friends .
    In fact it shows only a small number of smileys with a read more at the end. If you repeatedly click it then only the app may stop.
