OH NOES!! HOW WILL I SOCIAL MY MEDIA NOW?
Now, i’m not exactly a pro-user, twitter-maven or twit-master, but I have been using the platform quite frequently since January. What strikes me as odd and rather amusing is how twitter went down today, and the FailWhale was not displayed. No… Instead, the below was shown – and adding insult to injury, that image only showed after I cut and paste what I saw during the outage. Or was it an Outwige?
Twitter is currently down for <%= reason %>.
We expect to be back in <%= deadline %>. For more information, check out Twitter Status. Thanks for your patience!
Even funnier than the above (and the previously stated discovery I made) was that when I tried to click “Status” it brought me back to the same page.
Good Job Twitter. *scratches head* Shouldn’t you guys have that sort of thing figured out by now?
