Idea for promotion

Reddit had a short outage (that's what you say it?) today. What came to my mind is we could use a script that checks if reddit has issues and if it has it could notify us through gmail or whatever and then we have we quickly make a twitter post with appropriate hashtags #redditdown etc. Everyone during outage goes to twitter to ask what happened, that's how they could know we exist. How we can check if the reddit is down? Haven't investigated it yet. There is this site or starters:

EDIT: Not sure if it's worth the effort because such events occur very rarely.
