So it happened tonight. To the dismay of those of us who use it as drug of choice/best time suck of all time the world’s most sophisticated social media types, twitter was so down that we were not even getting that cute little fail whale graphic. How did I find out? On Facebook, of course. The other place where online junkies get their fix favorite network of choice.
My guess was that since the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is going on right now all the geekiest of geeks most sophisticated technology types were jamming twitter and causing it to sporadically fail.
I did a quick Google search to find out what was up and came across my new favorite site. It is called whentwitterisdown.com and every time you refresh the screen you get a new message. It is kind of like web 2.0s version of the magic 8 ball with an attitude.
Here are some of my faves:
I love the last one. And for the record, I don’t have a cat!

LOL! How about when Twitter is down, get your life back! (or my life back)
wait, twitter is not IRL?
For the record, my cats laugh at all my dick jokes — and I had no idea Twitter was down. (Worked a few minutes ago.)
of course your cats laugh at dick jokes, why wouldn’t they? yeh it’s back up. but I think CES is jamming the hell out of it.
Love this! I am afraid to start with twitter. I really don’t need another distraction but I keep wondering what fun I’m missing? Wait, shit, get back to work. 🙂
