#FaceBookDown: Facebook vs. Twitter 2021
Updated: Oct 14, 2021
Facebook Goes Down, Twitter Goes Crazy
If you've been online basically at all today, you obviously realize that Facebook suddenly, inexplicably has disappeared from the internet.
This comes hot on the heels of numerous reports accusing Facebook of impropriety and bad ethics. Naturally, this makes for conspiracy theory fodder.
But Twitter's really just here for the LOLS. Here are some of the best tweets today if you're ready to laugh along. You can check #facebookdown on Twitter for more, current content as well.
Twitter Roasts Facebook, McDonald's Helps
Twitter shows off that it can still communicate with the outside world, with a simple "hello literally everyone." McDonald's chimes in to ask, "hi what can i get u," and Twitter boasts that they'd like to buy, "59.6 million nuggets for my friends."
AOL, It's Your Time
User @FearThePegasus suggests that it's time for AOL to make a comeback. After all, AOL is slow, but at least it's a working option.
Google, Help Us Out
A documented surge of Google search results that spike in the morning seems to raise some questions. Perhaps Facebook was trying to find a solution to their problem on Google?
Watching It Burn
Of course, every major event has the ubiquitous "I don't care, watch it all burn," meme.
MySpace Tom, The Comeback Kid
Much like the already mentioned AOL - MySpace had its problems and there's a reason why it lost users to Facebook. But perhaps it's time for a comeback?
Facebook Calls Tech Support
Using a screenshot from the British comedy The IT Crowd, one user pokes fun at the idea of Mark Zuckerberg having to wait on hold for IT support.
Social Media Squid Game
Squid Game, the new Netflix show where the characters must fight for their lives, is re-imagined here. WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram are depicted as fallen players.
Seriously, Even The Pittsburgh Symphony Has Jokes
The Pittsburgh Symphony offers a musical take on it. You can see Twitter, singing along happily in the top bars. Meanwhile, Facebook, Instagram, and What's App are silent.
Even Eve 6 Is Wary
The lead singer of Eve 6 jokes to watch out for outsiders who migrate into Twitter. He refers to them as bridge and tunnel people, which is a common New York colloquialism to refer to people who come to the city but don't live there.

We'll keep updating (we all know Facebook won't).
