Though Facebook didn’t tweet about its outage, plenty of other people did turn to the official social network for complaining about inaccessible websites. That would be Twitter — the place where everyone rushes to to make jokes about interacting with real humans in the real world and lament ironically about the inability to know what randos from middle school think about their morning bagel and whatnot. Also Tweets associated with the new ‘n’ trendy hashtag #FacebookDown
