Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey seems to be getting simply as a lot schadenfreude out of at present’s international Fb outage as anybody. The microblogging chief is tweeting by Fb’s DNS points by dunking on the corporate amid its newest spherical of scrutiny from The Wall Street Journal, 60 Minutes, and lawmakers.
WhatsApp making an attempt to be cute on Twitter? Dorsey is there to remind you of the drama over WhatsApp’s privateness coverage.
Twitter customers suggesting Fb’s area identify is in some way on the market? Dorsey wants a piece of the action — and to push Kanye West’s new album for some motive (to be clear, it doesn’t seem that Fb’s area identify is definitely on the market, and Dorsey nearly definitely is aware of this as effectively).
And actually? I can’t blame him. For as hellish as I think about fixing this difficulty is for the engineers at Fb and anybody who depends on the corporate’s merchandise for work, there’s something undeniably pleasant about spending a couple of hours with out a number of the greatest social networks on the earth. It’s nearly peaceable.
(Dorsey does appear to love dunking on his firm’s greatest rival; he introduced the snark for Fb’s rebrand and the corporate’s thus far disastrous first steps into cryptocurrency.)
Nonetheless, though it’s been a while since we’ve seen its fail whale, the subsequent time Twitter suffers an outage (it’s been identified to occur), Dorsey shouldn’t anticipate any sympathy from his rivals.
