Twitter Stock Curiously Tanked as People Flock to the App while #InstagramFacebookDown

This Slogging thread occurred in hackernoon's official #random channel, and has been edited for readability. Facebook and Instagram are down today, but Facebook's PR firm says this is unrelated to the global outage experienced on 4 October 2021. The pod is titled "HackerNoon shuts down Zucc empire with one article" and "If anything zuck sues us see you in court :savage-joy: ย Iโ€™d say weโ€™ve made it as a pod if we get even close to FB legals was coming here to post something along those lines.

Twitter is trolling

DavidOct 4, 2021, 7:21 PM

Maybe large outages just create a lack of faith in all tech companies? like whatever the opposite of a rising tide lifts all boats is...

Wait, hold on, so what exactly is happening here? I is Fb under attack?

Ellen If you are looking for a serious answer, facebook, ig, messager, whatsapp (basically the whole mark zucc empire) is under a โ€œglobal outageโ€ right after the accusation of โ€œconstantly prioritizing profitsโ€. it happens once in a while. i guess some dev just tryna introduce new code and the code has bugs :savage-joy:

But on the less serious note, yes, we did that. or twitter did that so people come to use them more

EllenOct 4, 2021, 9:15 PM

Well, I'm starting to realize what the topic of the pod will be. "HackerNoon shuts down Zucc empire with one article"

DavidOct 4, 2021, 9:16 PM
HangOct 4, 2021, 9:16 PM

Ellen ok and if anything zuck sues us see you in court :savage-joy:

LinhOct 4, 2021, 9:17 PM

Iโ€™d say weโ€™ve made it as a pod if we get even close to FB legals
