What’s happened to Twitter? Mourn the social media outage with us
It seems like the Twitter bird had gone temporarily hoarse. Last night into this morning, the popular social media platform Twitter experienced an outage, mostly affecting users on the east coast. No one is exactly certain what caused the outage, with Twitter’s API status still looking into the issue even though the site is mostly back up and running currently.
Naturally, many people on Twitter (when they could finally get back on the site) responded to this accordingly with memes and jokes about the outage. We hacked our way through and found the best of these reactions to the Twitter outage.

People do know that Twitter’s mostly back up now, right? We can see everything you posted during the outage and dude, maybe you should have kept that to yourself. . .
Let this recent twitter outage remind you that everything you put on here might one day be gone, and that's okay https://t.co/c3eVMhbnBP
