Gmail Down Time Causes Huge Social Network Traffic

Posted on Sep 1 2009 - 8:33pm by Richard Sharp

On September 1st 2009 widespread panic and speculation took over social networking sites. I logged into my twitter account and by the time I had read the first three comments at the top of the keyword list there were over 2000 more ready to be loaded. This mass tweeting continues as speculation grows over what has caused this problem and when the problem may end?

Our questions to you are:

How did this effect you?
What do you think caused it?

All comments are welcome so let’s have them
