Twitter is down and the sky is falling – what to do about it.

It looks like Twitter has been the victim of a hacker this morning as the service is well and truly down – as are most third party add on tools that integrate to Twitter.

Here’s what you can do to fill the time until you get your Tweets back:

1. Work – no excuses no distractions, get on with your work and you will be amazed at what you can achieve without Twitter to distract you.

2. Use an alternative – Facebook and Friendfeed are both working for now so try them out.

3. Update your security – if it can happen to Twitter it can happen to anyone.

4. Look up “Denial of Service” on Wikipedia

5. Call someone up and have a real world chat or even better go and talk to a real person (one you can touch!).

6. Check out Twitter’s blog which is still up and running for up to the hour updates.

7. Try something new instead – like Identi.

  1. Great advice as usual! I wonder if Twitter will take over the little ones like Identi in the future?

    “…you will be amazed at what you can achieve without Twitter to distract you” haha, so true.
