    What Happens When Google Goes Down? Chaos!

    Posted by Jason Williams

    The Best Tweets During This Morning’s Google Apocalypse

    It was a seemingly normal July Wednesday morning for most people in the Southeast when all of a sudden, Google went down. Yes, THE Google. Reports of people having trouble with Google started flooding in around 8:30am on Twitter from Nashville, Atlanta, and the two Carolinas. The hashtag #GoogleDown began to overwhelm the Twitter universe with some very clever tweets (although most were boring).  Here are the best tweets we’ve seen so far:

    We will never forget 7/10!!  #GoogleDown

    #GoogleDown – D*mn you Snowden

    #GoogleDown sounds like a lil Wayne rap song
