In an unlikely scenario, Reddit went down for an hour, and netizens dived straight to Twitter. After all, opening Twitter whenever some other apps close down is quite the norm these days. Seems like the apps are on a drive to let us down on a regular basis. Not so long ago, Instagram acted weird out of the blue and the majority of the users panicked thinking they were banned from the app. Although the flare-up of responses isn’t as extensive as it was when Instagram went down, there are a couple of responses worth looking at. While some people were expressing relief on discovering that they were not banned. Others were busy talking about how rarely they use Reddit(Although that did not stop them from taking part in the dialogue).

Responses on Twitter
As soon as the app went down, responses began to pile up on Twitter. While some users were clearly displeased at the app being down for such a long time(mind it, by “long time” we mean just ninety minutes, although that can feel like an eternity when boredom strikes), others were just happy that they still have Twitter to scroll through and kill time. Let us glance through a few responses on Twitter.
Twitter is the ultimate destination.
Me!!! And so we all ended up on Twitter.

Talk about normal human responses and habits.
When we’re not on one, we’re on the other. 😆

What terrifying activities are these people engaged in to think that they are banned every time an app goes down.
