Even Yahoo tweeted it.
Luckily after about 7 very long minutes… Things returned to normal. Gmail was back up. We made it alive!
During the outage thousands of people tweeted about their collective horror. #Gmaildown was trending, as well as Hotmail on Twitter. Google+ was also down during the time. Unfortunately, nobody noticed– unless they were trying to leave a mean comment on YouTube.
Today was a day that will live on in infamy.
Funny thing about watching tweets re: #Gmail being down… It’s that nobody noticed G+ was down too… Aww poor G+ nobody missed u 🙁
