#Googlefail, get your news from Twitter!

So yesterday in the office everyone was freaking out because the Internet wasn’t working. It was lagging and nobodys email was going though, and basically driving us all crazy because 99% of what we do is on the Internet. There are probably about ten or fifteen active computers in the Office and they were all having problems. So we thought, it must be something wrong with the connection. We tried turning on and off the Internet connection, resetting it a few times, thinking that it would help, but no luck. So when someone finally got onto their Twitter account they saw that the trending topic of the day was #googlefail.

Now, if any of you are reading this and you arent already Twitter fanatics, you are really out of the loop. (get a Twitter account, pronto!) Instead of messing around on our computers all morning and turining on and off the connection and being totally in mystery as to why it was so hard for everyone to send an emial from our Gmail accounts, we could have eaisly figured it out just by looking on our Twitter accounts at the status updates. “#googlefail.”

So, basically Im saying that Twitter is apparently becoming a source of breaking news, or at least it’s going to tell you when somethings wrong with your Internet connection.
