Cell phone Outages

I have been using Twitter for the past few weeks trying to make a useful tool out of it. After having a cell outage in my area, calling my cell provider to find out what was going on and they had no idea. I came up with this idea.

I set this up for those that have a Twitter account and those that don't. Everyone can post their Cellular problems just by sending an email to mycellularoutagesgmailcom and the body of the email gets posted to the MyCellOutages Twitter site.

This will be a useful tool for those that are having troubles and they are wondering if anyone else is having the same problems in the same area or a totally different area. Especially if the cell provider is not aware of the problems just yet. Like in my case. I searched for anything that could give me information that day and came across several different forums that were very old posts. This would bring fresh news about any problems and would allow people to instantly know if there is an occurring problem in their area. If you don't see something in your area then you can post about it through the email posted here and on the MyCellOutage Twitter site.

So go follow MyCellOutage if you have a Twitter account and let's get this thing moving along.
