5 Things to do While Twitter is Down

Wubba Waht?

So if you haven’t heard already, Twitter is Kaput. Completely down. The app, the web interface, hell I didn’t even get a reassuring “fail whale” image which leads me to believe it’s not a capacity issue, but something perhaps more complicated. The app is also down on both iOS and Android. The first thing that comes to mind, is to send out a ‘tweet’ about it.

So, while engineers scamper to resolve the issue, here are 5 things you can do while the service is down:

  1. Obsessively hit reload on your browser
  2. Attempt texting tweets to 40404
  3. Bust out excel and put a 140 character limitation on a cell and start jotting down some tweets for later
  4. Send out text emails using only 140 characters
  5. Try reloading your browser again

Have a tip on what’s going on? Wonder if the Google Talk outage is related? ¬†If you find out let me know
