Earlier: Breaking news, all United domestic flights have been grounded due to computer outage http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/all-united-airlines-domestic-flights-grounded-computer-outage-n710596
https://twitter.com/united/status/823336113515462656 The sources said the flights were grounded due to a problem with the communication system that airplanes use to send information to United operations. Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System, or ACARS, is used to record and transmit a range of information, including departure times, as well as weight and balance, which is used to calculate takeoff speeds.
The system outage was an issue for planes that had yet to depart, as pilots need this information to safely take off. Planes already in the air were in no danger, the sources said. The issue did not affect communications between planes and air traffic control- CNN
Update: United have slowy started resuming flights and are trying to get passengers to thier final destination the airline tweeted: https://twitter.com/united/status/823351501276020737

These are becoming shockingly frequent. I don’t think this is any coincidence, something shifty might be going on.

Really? Wow, that’s bad!
