falani Profile: falani


Gmail users woke up this morning to find Gmail is down and had been for nearly half an hour.

Now that might not sound like a long time but, judging by the reaction on Twitter it’s certainly long enough to spread panic and chaos across the internet and in people’s working lives.

Here are some of my picks of Twitter quotes and there is a live feed is below.

  • tigertwo: Going to join the hue and cry about #gmail or #gfail. How am I supposed to get any work done when I rely exclusively on Gmail?

  • markcrosby: Has anyone at Google tried turning it off and turning it back on again? #gmail #gfail  

  • dimrac: More than 113 million people use Google mail worldwide, according to comScore. #gmail #gfail
