Slack Servers Went Down And Media Twitter Freaked the Geek Out!


Slack is down and media twitter is freaking out!

For those who don’t work with Slack on a daily basis, it’s basically the conference room for those who work remotely. It’s the hub of communication for those in media.

Countless writers and editors are currently looking at screens saying “connection trouble,” and screaming in horror.

Have a tip we should know?
