Why 2% of the Gmail Users Faced Temporary Error (500) on 4/17?

Okay, I woke up at 9.00 am PDT. Gmail was working fine. At exactly 9.21 am PDT, after seeing the temporary error (500) message, I got furious and tweeted. And, realized that I am not the only one through http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/. By the way, this rant went somewhat viral with 1000+ clicks.

After tweeting to Sarah Price, Community Manager for Gmail. She shared this updated link of Google’s App Status Dashboard.
