Yahoo Mail disruption sparks social media chatter

SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Yahoo Mail users took to Twitter to express frustration about disruptions Friday on the free messaging service.

Website Downrightnow.com, which monitors popular online services, listed the status of Yahoo Mail as experiencing "likely disruption" and displayed a graph indicating it had been down for several hours.

The graph showed Yahoo Mail being down several times in a one-day period.

Yahoo did not respond to an AFP request for comment regarding the nature and extent of the problem.

"Yahoo mail is down... AGAIN," a Twitter user wrote in commentary fired off with the hashtag #yahoomail.

"Totally frustrated."
