Essential office communication tool Slack went down abruptly this morning and businesses everywhere ground to a halt as a result.
Professionals actually had to add their colleagues to G-Chat (oh the horror) and get their daily dose of /giphys via Twitter instead. It’s been a rough morning for all but now, thankfully, Slack is back!
Here are some of the funniest reactions to the Slack outage on Twitter:
With @SlackHQ still down, I can only communicate by phone, text, email, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, GroupMe, Instagram, and Snapchat.
Now I know how my grandparents did business.

Things to do when Slack is down:
1. Complain on Twitter
2. Try to remember your Facebook password so you can complain there
3. See if Google+ is still around, complain
4. Check Slack, if still down, repeat steps 1-3 pic.twitter.com/7Nujb6sKUn

Subject: Can’t work; no slack
Clearly since Slack is down & the tech world is in mass hysteria, none of us can work today. We should all take the day off. Maybe even the week to finish calming down from this hysteria.

Always a shock when Slack goes down and you hear your millennial colleagues talking out loud.
