Twitter may be down, perhaps the victim of the same denial-of-service attack that knocked Kotaku and Gawker Media out earlier this week, but that doesn't mean you have to start working. Not if we can help it.

Go ahead tell us about that coffee you just bought, about the game you're playing, the boss who is irritating you. We are all ears. Just keep it to 140 characters or we'll lose interest.

Pretend you're Tweeting and if we all play along the illusion will be complete and no one has to go without. Deal?

We'll start the ball rolling:

Crecenteb: I think I'm going to do a post about Twitter.

Andrew_Freedman @crecenteb: Great idea!

bunnyspatial RT@Andrew_Freedman: Great idea! I only like Twitter when I'm drunk.
