When Twitter crashes, where do we go to tweet about not being able to tweet?
There are few things in our lives as synonymous as Twitter. It’s a lifeline for some and to many it’s a source of news. It’s what Facebook wanted to be when it decided to swing an election, but not even Twitter is immune to problems.
Much like Facebook, it’s prone to crashing. That seems to be what happened on Tuesday morning — a day we’ll never forget. It’s the day Twitter went down and we collectively became that panicked The Office meme.
But, it did.
Do we blame the Russians, or do we just take to the streets and start a revolution? I want to push this piece out on social, but where???
Maybe the platform isn’t down for everyone (TweetDeck seems to be working a little), but for most everyone, the social media platform crashed on Tuesday morning sending the world into a panicked frenzy. But by God, this is the chance for the freedom we’ve all been waiting for.
We’re free from our galactic overlords and can now emerge into the world with a new experience. The experts say that social media is an addiction, so what better thing to have happen to us then to be forcibly removed from the equation by way of a crash?
But the world revolves around the use of social media, whether it’s for work or for pleasure. So when things like this happen, we never ever look at the brighter side of life and instead resort to mass panic and frustration over something that really shouldn’t even exist in our lives.
It’s the end of the world, and now no one is going to be able to live stream it. Humanity’s greatest tragedy, or perfect poetic justice? Without Twitter to tell us, how will we know which one it is?
Stay safe out there.
