Just for context, here are some tweets from just three days ago:
The Data Services Hub is the backbone of the Health Insurance Marketplace & it's working well. What is it? MORE: http://t.co/VeDjzklbAM

That was Saturday, and by Sunday the hub, or “backbone” of the health insurance marketplace, was down, despite having been lauded by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius as an example of what’s “working well.” By Tuesday night, though, the federal hub was down again. Fortunately, this is just a “hiccup” — at least that’s what Access Health CT said before deleting the tweet.
Yup, it's down again. This is like Twitter in 2007-can't someone design a cute animal graphic to post during outages? pic.twitter.com/RzVpKkzc26

Per HHS official: "Verizon Terremark again experienced network issues in their data center that caused a system outage"

Megyn Kelly announced the outage during “The Kelly File.”
The system is completely broken, but on the plus side, the Obamacare Glitch Girl has been found.
