Update 2: We just received a statement from a YouTube spokesperson:

“Some users encountered errors, or a slower than normal experience on YouTube today. Our engineers worked quickly to address the issue and fixed the problem within minutes. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this caused our users.”

Update: It’s back, in time for the call.

YouTube is down. Here’s what we’re seeing:

Twitter is going crazy.

This just happens to come at a time when Google is getting ready to do its earnings call, which is supposed to be available via webcast on YouTube. There was already one Google earnings-related debacle today.

We’ve reached out to Google for comment, and will update if and when we receive a response.

    Google: A massive boondoggle! The biggest data mining bot the world has ever seen. IMHO. They spy for hire for any country! IMHO. Chinese, Russian, Iranian IMHO. Have money? Will data mine.

    Android OS: Googles preferred bot of choice.

    They are either being targeted or have shut down their servers in an effort to slowdown the arterial bleed.

    I’m of the opinion that this is a very bad company that needs to bleed out (politically speaking)and come under new management, or go away.
