SAO PAULO/RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Facebook Inc's WhatsApp messaging service resumed in Brazil on Tuesday after an appeals court overturned a suspension and many of the application's 100 million users in the country voiced outrage. WhatsApp was cut off in Brazil at 2 p.m. (1700 GMT) on Monday after a judge in the remote northeastern state of Sergipe ordered Brazil's five main wireless operators to block access to the app for 72 hours. The suspension was lifted after about 24 hours when an appeals judge on Tuesday ruled in favor of an injunction by WhatsApp's lawyers, the court said in a statement.
