Skype Goes Down, Uses Twitter to Tell World [Update]

For some reason this seemed sort of ironic, or at least amusing to us: Skype is down, and the VoIP/Text/Video/Audio chat service used Twitter to tell the world. Even if you find it to be neither, we know many of our readers use the service, and thus it seemed important to pass it on: Skype is down, and the company is trying to find out why.

The company said via its official Skype Twitter account on Wednesday, “Some of you may have problems signing in to Skype – we’re investigating, and we’re sorry for the disruption to your conversations.”

Out another way:

Skype, Via Twitter

In the meanwhile, we’ll update this article when Skype comes back up again.

[Update: Skype appears to be back up again. We say “appears,” because though we can log on to Skype, Twitter is now down, and thus Skype has no way of telling us… - Editor]

[Update to the update: All is right with the world, because Twitter is also back up. We know this because Skype tweeted that it is working again. Hoorah! - Editor]
