Twitter users were in uproar over something last night.

Someone said something about someone, or something, and Twitter was immediately outraged.

Users of the social media giant vented their fury about the incident, some using several consecutive tweets, as the standard 140 character single tweet just wasn't enough to convey the sense of abhorrence they felt towards the thing that had upset them.

Internet news sites, newspapers and even television broadcasts quoted some tweets in their programmes, just to prove how upset and relevant Twitter is.

After several attempts to calm Twitter down, onlookers decided it was best to just leave it alone for a while, but Twitter was so wound up it wouldn't let it lie.

According to bystanders it 'went off on one', creating its own hashtag #twitterisfuriousagain, and tweeting wild claims about boycotting stuff until whatever it was backed down, or apologised or something.

Nearing critical mass, disaster was only narrowly avoided at the last minute, when a quick thinking member of the public started an online petition against whatever it was that had upset Twitter in the first place.

Feeling a little better about itself, Twitter calmed down a bit.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
