That is a bad sign for any social media company, especially while Facebook and Google continue to thrive.
Now, the world has taken to Twitter today to (ironically) imagine a world without the service.
And yes, life looks bleak without it.

Interestingly, it isn’t the first time this hashtag has appeared. It began trending in South Africa again late Friday morning, but has appeared in different capacities on Twitter as early as 2013.
