    Option B
    Explanation:

    The passage says about Fans who are upset because the live streaming service got crashed and the channel was under pressure. So ‘C’ cannot be the answer. The episode was not yet started so we can’t presume what happened in the middle. Hence Option ‘A’ is discarded. As Fans were upset so they need something to drain out their anger. Hence they took to social media “Twitter” to share their unhappiness. So, Option B is the right answer.
