When service X is down, everyone rushes to Twitter to write about it.

I spent years wondering where I would address my rants in case Twitter was down.

Today happened, the Fediverse remained healthy and up, and nobody here gave a sh*t about it.

@blacklight he he, I liked the HN top-level comment on one of the "Twitter down" threads:

"Mental health across the world is already improving."

@humanetech just as I expected, if you go to other social media you find comments like " wtf?", while on HN you find lengthy comments explaining how a butterfly in California may have flickered its wings in a way that created a low pressure pocket that eventually caused a hard drive in Twitter's data centers to fail.

@blacklight@social.platypush.tech Who cares if Twitter is down. But for most sites or social networks you can also get Up / Down state and stats on https://downdetector.com/

@abid sure, but people want somewhere to *rant* when a service is down, not somebody who just tells them that the service is down.

That's why I believe that should get into the business of social media, and it'd probably be one of the most successful ones too.

@blacklight@social.platypush.tech pitty it's disqus comments, as you say if it's connected to fediverse, it would be great

@abid @blacklight

Disqus should be avoided like the plague anyway.. the dark commenting system (that is somehow still super widely integrated everywhere).
