Users are noting on Twitter that Gmail appears to have gone down.

HuffPostTech blogger @CBMyers noted, "Facebook announces e-mail and Gmail goes down? #irony." @Mlinsey tweeted, "Gmail is down. Wish I had an invite for that Facebook "Gmail killer"!" Another user, @megpickard, wrote, "So Facebook launches its email service - nicknamed Gmail Killer - and Gmail goes down. That was quick!"

HuffPostTech is having trouble accessing Gmail as well--we're seeing the error message, "We're sorry, but your Gmail account is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest trying again in a few minutes."

As of 4:00PM ET, Google has no mention of a Gmail outage on the Google App Status Dashboard, where you can check on Gmail's status. You can also get updates on Gmail via the live Twitter feed below.
