Twitter had a lot to say
The issue definitely didn’t go unnoticed online.

When #Slack is down the whole tech world descends into chaos. We are lost. Directionless. Will we ever see the light again?! What is this archaic thing the Elders call "e-mail?"

When you’re a freelancer and #slack goes down, its essentially the equivalent of a zombie apocalypse in the digital world. Coffee break?

Slack. A decrease in activity, as in business or work.
