The Apocalypse is nigh.
Twitterers (Tweeters? Twits?), take heart! Fox News has just reported that Twitter is indeed back up and running; though you may have to wait for your Twitter fix since it is suffering from some serious snail fail.
The Apocalypse? I think this is the first time in human history that the news was interrupted to announce such a thing. This is proof of at least one (I think it’s proof of all) of the following:
1) Twitter is addictive;
2) Twitter is so all pervasive that Twitter outage warrants breaking into regular news programming;
3) Twitter is now officially lame (no seriously “cool” thing – or whatever they’re calling the newest, bestest craze these days – is that popular with the masses); and/or
4) I was right to never join.
LATER: How funny is it that “Twitter” is a word in the wordpress spellchecker but “Obama” is not? Mildly.
