Did you log on to Facebook or Instagram this morning hoping to find out about any storm damage in Texas, check out some high school football scores or just see what you missed overnight — but found out that neither was working? Yep, us too.
As of about 8:20 a.m., both networks appeared to be back in service. In the interim, Twitter users had some fun with the outage.
