I mean, I don't even have to say anything for you to know what happened. We were all affected. And although it sucked for a moment, it was hilarious watching us all lose our shit about it. Here are some of my favorite #gmaildown tweets.

Gmail is down - I have got an idea. Let's blow off work, go to the mall, have a calorie fest, and see the new Christian Bale.
