As most know, Gmail has had hiccups today and as I write this, is down. While I used to visit blogs for more information when sites like Gmail, YouTube or Facebook stop working, Twitter has become my go-to source for information on how widespread the problem is and what’s being done to fix it. I save my visits to the blogs for later if I need context. However, this only works when Twitter stays up, and right now, I’m spotting the fail whale. Oh, the irony.
