When Wikipedia Went Down

Leave a Comment

The world’s online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, has gone down twice today. And now Wikipedia is up.  wikipedia

When The world’s online encyclopedia, Wikipedia went down. I’ve seen a big stream of tweets in twitter for the first time. Everyone is saying, “oh ! no Wikipedia is down” .

Some tweeted funny and some tweeted serious tweets.  I’ve never seen such a stream of tweets beside some special events. But  today I’ve feel the real power of Twitter more clearly.

There are thousands of tweets among them I’m posting some tweets here:
