Huffington post tweet gmail down

 

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.
