Twitter had a massive outage today for a good portion of the day. Luckily for me, it was when I was trying to use it this morning, and couldn’t access TweetDeck or Twitter directly. Apparently it was a Denial of Service issues that had to do with hacker activity. I wonder how many people became paralyzed for just a few minutes while it set in that the mighty “Twit” was down.
It took me a minute, admittedly. I thought, “Nah, must just be my computer, Twitter can’t be down.” Oh sure enough, it was. After coming to grips there, I was utterly amazed how much work I got done in the following 2 hours. I sat down and got some cold calls done. I miss that on days I can’t get to it. I’d have gotten it done eventually, but not by getting sucked into perusing the Twitter site for over an hour. You can get lost in that site!
It’s good to see that good old fashioned Non-Twitter work still lives on….
