NASDAQ crash over the weekend (kind of…)
We have a demo and reference account (login: email@example.com password: demo ) and one of the transaction test macros is a Twitter search performance test. The macro navigates to Twitter.com in Firefox and does a search for the words “NASDAQ crashed” – a phrase I thought that will not turn up in the foreseeable future:
TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:TEXT FORM=ID:home_search ATTR=ID:searchform_q CONTENT=“NASDAQ crashed”
TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:SUBMIT FORM=ID:home_search ATTR=ID:searchform_submit
TAG POS=1 TYPE=H2 ATTR=TXT:“No results*”
But when I checked the test today I saw that Twitter – according to this test – was down the last 48h – obviously a wrong result and false alarm. But after looking at the error screenshot (embedded below) I saw that AlertFox was right and the NASDAQ had really crashed – at least according to one user 🙂
