Shortly after Roseanne posted her question and challenge to "Q," her website and her Twitter account mysteriously disappeared. Some speculated that "Twitter got her."

When fans freaked out, assuming that some harm had come to her, she tweeted that she was okay and would explain more "later."

Everything wasn't exactly the same, however. Some fans pointed out that she'd lost 200,000 followers in the brief outage.

While others wondered if it was really Roseanne or an impersonator:

But others were just glad she was back:

Roseanne still hasn't explained exactly what happened, but has been tweeting nonstop on other topics since coming back online. Looks like she's okay now -- if it's the real her.
