What happens when Twitter goes down

Twitter was down for more than an hour today and as of 1:20PM CST it continues to have problems according to their status page.

This is what happens when Twitter goes down, blog and even news sites go frenzy, Facebook and Google+ usage increases, and people go out and see the Sun probably for the first time in days…

Is Twitter too BIG to fail?

Is the Fail Whale on vacation?

This proves to all the naysayers that Twitter has become a relevant service for consumers and businesses, Twitter is important regardless of the information being shared in it… when was the last time you saw that many news outlets comment when your cable goes down?
