Facebook was down for most of the day on Monday and Twitter users - and Twitter ITSELF - loved it.

Instagram and Whatsapp were down, but their Twitter accounts remained up, as did all of Twitter:

Adele jumped in:

Lowe's with the killer dad joke:

IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) offering their special help:

McD's, coming in hotter than a freshly cooked pan of french fries:

Twix, no idea if it was right or left:


Microsoft Teams (I cracked up):

And Tampax, for the WIN:

Sadly, Facebook came back around dinner time, just in time for your great aunt to rejoin after dinner to get caught up on conspiracy theories and vaccine misinformation. Sorry.
