Twitter Outage

Earlier today, Twitter was down for roughly an hour.

CNN reported the Twitter Outage with the following headline

Twitter crashes hard, Internet freaks out.

It just goes to show how dependent we have become on social media, especially the 140 characters of Twitter.

As of February, the Pew Internet and American Life Project reported that “some 15 percent of online adults use Twitter, and 8 percent do so on a typical day.”

Now who would be happy that Twitter is down.  Here’s my top list:
