#PowerCutLKA

Last evening’s island-wide power outage was the longest in 20 years. Coupled with the unbearable heat, it was a very uncomfortable six hours indeed to millions of Sri Lankans from all walks of life (barring the 1% with generators and air-conditioned homes). Unlike 20 years ago, however, this time people were blessed (or cursed?) with a platform to vent on and air their frustrations and a lot of people took to the interwebs to complain. We’ve rounded up a few of the wittier tweets from last night.

The best of them all was a Facebook post from the official Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) account. Not a shred of irony here, folks.
