Twitter we understand, but we can’t remember the last time we’ve seen this. Anyone want to hazard a guess?
Update: Amazon says hello in this post. The outage (still going as of 3:15 p.m. ET) is an “un-planned event,” and they’re “actively engaged” in fixing it.

Update3: Oops, that didn’t last long. Looks like it’ll be hit-or-miss for a while.
Amazon (AMZN) was trading at $82.25 at 1:37 p.m. ET, and dove down to a low of $80.90 at 2:40 p.m. That’s a 1.6% drop that shaved around half a billion dollars off Amazon’s market cap.
