Online gaming services like PSN and Xbox Live are awesome…until they stop working. Today, Xbox Live has been down for several hours and the community is understandably upset, as they're unable to play any games online or download updates.
Microsoft is well aware of the outage and as of 4pm EST today, it stated that an investigation is being made to fix the issue.
We are aware that users may not be able to sign-in to Xbox Live at this time. Our teams are currently investigating to fix this issue. We will update here and on https://t.co/PzAdjUFMJj when we have more information to share!

Though, since Xbox Live has been down for so long now, many users have taken to Twitter to express their concerns — by doing what they do best: Roasting Microsoft for the outage. With that in mind, let's take a look at the funniest tweets about the Xbox Live outage.
We really like this one from rapper/actor Ice T:
Gamer Stuff: Xbox Live crashed… Fuck!

And this one from user @oliverb888452 is pretty great, too:

How about this one by user @dpnny_?

Finally, user @WhoDeyNation30 was not a fan of Microsoft temporarily raising the price of Xbox Live Gold:

Those are just some of the funniest tweets about Xbox Live's recent outage. Microsoft hasn't given an estimate of when the service will be back up, but until then, the community will likely keep on tweeting about it.
