Netflix back after two-hour Friday night outage
Did Netflix spoil your fun when its Web site went down Friday evening, taking with it the “Watch Instantly” movie streaming on your computer or TV screen? Even if you weren’t cut off mid-stream watching “Being John Malcovich,” your friends might have tipped you off when they tweeted about this unfortunate event. TweetMeme shows Mashable’s story, “Netflix goes down,” as one of the hottest links on Twitter (with 636 tweets just after midnight Saturday). The Huffington Post also reported the news during the outage, but so far, online news organizations outside the social media haven’t appeared to pick up on this story.
