I still think a status page is the answer.

Opt all new customers in. Most solutions have opt-out links in the 
emails. The rest as they say should solve itself.

Most status systems can support twitter outputs for the presidentially 
inclined....though these days maybe snapchat is a a better notification 
medium to reach young hip sysadmins, and have your outages be forgotten 
about in 15 min.
