Is Twitter Down?


Is Twitter Down?

Twitter has apparently been down since about 04:53:18 US Eastern Time, and it’s amazing how riled people can get about a FREE service being down.

Check out the how frantic some of these guys are getting: Some people are calling their service providers to make sure that Twitter hasn’t been inadvertently blocked! Hey, I love Twitter, but I’m not ready to deal with an hour on tech support with my Internet provider, until I’m sure it’s not a Twitter problem first.

In any case, if anyone still thinks that Twitter can be ignored, I’d think again.

The search term “is twitter down” has rocketed to the 21st most popular google search in last few hours.

So, if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon, you may want to come see what all the fuss is about. Follow us at @writers4hire. I’m not as big a junkie as some, but I do have to admit, it’s kind of a bummer twitter is down. :-(


Update: Twitter is back up! But not before “twitter down” made it to #17 on the most searched for topics on Google. Wowsers…

    The black out affected my entire blog template which is full of all kinds of Twitter friendly hacks. It was so frustrating
