Slack says they are the place “where work happens.” But at approximately 7:25 p.m the workplace messaging app went down!
Two hours later it started working again.
It's smooth sailing again. Everyone should be able to connect to Slack. Thank you for your time and patience, we know how precious both are.— Slack (@SlackHQ) November 1, 2017
But what happens when the digital workspace for thousands of employees goes down? How do important messages get sent? How will employees communicate? Well they go to Twitter to lose their minds.
Me: “HA HA, these tweets about Slack being down are so fun!”— Mike Roe (@MikeRoe) October 31, 2017
