Slack, the popular chat room/messenger app/reaction GIF generator that many companies are now cripplingly addicted to, went down around 2:40 PM EST today.
It was a dark time. People couldn't communicate with their co-workers.
Or send the perfect reaction GIF.
Panic and conspiracy theories spread across Twitter.
Some began to welcome a post-Slack era.
Elsewhere, others resorted to desperate measures to communicate.
Really desperate measures.
Fortunately we still had Twitter to tide us over.
But then, like a shining miracle, Slack came back to life around 5:20 p.m. ET.
And all was well in the world again. 🙏
