Twitter was hit by a Denial of Service attack today, temporarily shutting down the site and making it run sluggish upon its return. This is the first time Twitter has been down for a prolonged period of time since May. Twitter has become such an important part of our society and Internet culture that there has been a huge void during its down time.
The real question is, who is attacking Twitter? Does this have anything to do with the denial of service attack that hit government websites over the fourth of July weekend? Rumor has itFacebook was hit as well, as that site has been running sluggishly all day. It is clear someone has targeted Twitter. Since Twitter causes such a stir when it is temporarily unavailable is this just the start of future attacks on the website? Whatever the case may be we decided to create this funny little t-shirt that depicts the days events.
You can get the t-shirt here.
