Twitter went offline on Tuesday morning and users in Africa, United Kingdom, USA, Japan and Europe were unable to read or send tweets.
Tweeps were complaining about their favourite social network but there was no Twitter to complain about it on.
CapeTalk/702’s Redi Tlhabi on Wednesday asked listeners of what they did when Twitter went offline:
When technology is down it is beautiful because we go back to being people again.— Luke, caller in Johannesburg
Listen to the full conversation on The Redi Tlhabi Show:
Social media takes a lot of time away from loved ones.— Manda, caller in Randburg
Literally every two minutes I am on social media… I can’t function, I even Whatsapp and Facebook in church— Lindi, caller in Centurion
Here are some of the twitter responses to the topic:
