What if FriendFeed and Twitter failed simultaneously?

It was the middle of the night, and I was using the Google empire to reply to Disqus comments (via Gmail) and to read and share (3) stuff (via Google Reader) when I went to FriendFeed...and couldn't get in.

It turns out that everyone was on Twitter, talking about a FriendFeed outage.

Isn't that backwards? I understand using FriendFeed when a #twittout happens, but using Twitter when an #ffout occurs?

And what will we do if both fail at once? Go to IRC? Usenet? Fax?
