Brazilian court orders suspension of WhatsApp8
SindiTelebrasil, an organization that represents Brazilian carriers, cautions that the court's suspension could result in losses for millions of Brazilians who depend on the application professionally and personally. While Judge Luiz de Moura Correia ordered the suspension earlier this month, the app continues to run normally in the country because an appeal was filed.
WhatsApp would not comment on the court order. Last year Facebook purchased WhatsApp for $22 billion.
