Times when twitter is quite handy

I was working away this morning on site for a client. We have their test subdomain set up on our server but the domain and DNS is managed at Earthlink. You can imagine my surprise at first when everything stopped working and I could no longer test! A quick ping to the host name confirmed an outage. What was the quickest way to find out if anybody else is feeling the pain?

Twitter!
