Slack Is Down Memes: Must-See Memes & Twitter Reactions

This Wednesday morning, the Slack messaging app, which many people use to communicate with their co-workers, was down for over four hours. Obviously, some companies use messaging apps to cut down on noise pollution in the office, so people in this position could just talk to each other, but there are others who use the app to work remotely. Cue an untold number of people refreshing their laptops, trying to emails their supervisors and praying to their various deities that they weren’t secretly laid off without knowing it. Of course, people still had access to the internet; some people tried to keep their cool and finish whatever work they could, while others took to Twitter and Instagram to voice their stress with the all-encompassing power of memes.

In fact, Slack used its official Twitter account to keep people updated!

We're investigating connectivity issues for all workspaces, thanks for your patience, we'll have updates shortly.

#Slack's been down for a while and it occurred to me. It's probably taking a long time for a whole bunch of people to work together on a fix, because Slack is down. 🤔

Slack is down, and people are actually talking to each other. It's like 2005 all over again.
