Ryan James OSullivan, on Twitter, joking, I hope:
@RJO: OMG GMAIL IS DOWN MY LIFE … ITS DESTROYED!!!
Here’s yet another example of why so many people are so tuned in to Twitter. Gmail has been down, worldwide in my experience, for over 1/2 an hour, impacting a lot of people. No mention, through Google News search, of the outage. Twitter is a source of news, information, and camaraderie and a great place to kvetch in 140 characters at a time. Rock on…..
During the worldwide outage, as Techcrunch reports, “the productivity of 20 million people worldwide just spiked upward.”
