I'm not sure if anyone else noticed, but Twitter and LJ were both down for over an hour this morning. I almost had a panic attack! Yes, I believe I do need help. Twitter is still down. Their servers seem to be run by the hamsters forced out of service by LJ due to age and/or hip replacement.
I did find a handy site during the crisis, Down or Not, which will let you know if a given site is down.
::clings to you all::
ETA: While posting this I found the connection to LJ is still rather dodgy. :/
