Technology Thoughts



It was the night of January 27, NZST. The people of the workforce had gone home, young children tucked in their beds. Then something happened.


Instagram didn’t load, Facebook went down. For about 20 minutes life as we knew it changed. We were forced to mull over the concept of real human interaction.Then we all realised something. Twitter was still thriving.So naturally we passed on picking up a book or closing our laptop lids and tweeted our fingertips off.

Here’s fave 5 tweets from the night.
