People have stampeded Twitter to laugh, joke and shake their fists at Facebook after it suffered a mysterious outage affecting users all over the world for a short period.

The site appears to be working again for most people, according to Is It Down Right Now.com.
In the meantime, Twitter provided the necessary diversion. There were a lot of the “sky is falling” tweets but this one sums it all up quite nicely:
