When twitter goes down

Its always a strange feeling when Twitter goes down. Since i started using Twitter regularly around a year ago it has become one of my primary sources of news. In particular it has replaced RSS as my primary means of keeping up to date with the industry. It is always immediate, I remember seeing stories break such as the death of Michael Jackson and the crash landing into the Hudson literally minutes after the time. It is a strange feeling then to have that connection cut off. It shouldn’t feel strange as we twitter users should be used to it by now. The funny thing is, when i saw twitter was down my initial thought was to tweet about it!.
