Every now and then a social media site goes down and people lose their minds. Last week, Instagram stopped working for about 45 minutes, which got me thinking – where do people go when Facebook or Instagram goes down? And if you scroll down you will be able to find out. I’ve also found a selection of tweets that made me laugh out loud and share my latest favourite Twitter account find.

Even though it is 2018 and everyone has a voice, Walter’s mom doesn’t like the tone he is taking with her.

Who knew cows could play fetch? Don’t answer that. It is a rhetorical question.

💖This is my new favourite Twitter account
A lot of people I follow have been RT some of these tweets so I checked out the account and was in stitches. This Twitter account gives better captions to New Yorker cartoons.

🐳Instagram went down and errybody turned to Twitter
On Wednesday, October 3rd, Instagram went down for a while (less than an hour). Your feed wouldn’t refresh and you got an “unable to refresh feed at this time” message. If you were on desktop, you got a server error.
So what caused the outage?

People turned to Twitter and realised it wasn’t just them
Welcome to all the Instagram users being forced to be on twitter tonight.
We don’t care about what your food looks like here. #instagramdown

So when Instagram goes down people go to Twitter, but when Facebook goes down, people actually go to news sites.
