Social Media Meltdown = OMGWTFBBQ INTERNET APOCALYPSE

You know you’re addicted when you keep hitting refresh hoping to finally get through instead of seeing that same error message. Edge of your seat anxiety. Mashable reported Twitter being down since early this morning. I’ve read about it being overloaded, a vicious attack, a bug, etc. I don’t know factual specifics, nor do I really, honestly and truly care to.

Just stabilize already baby, I’m pulling for you.

Apparently due to Twitter’s inaccessibility, Facebook was starting to struggle from the massive flood of people trying to get their social media fix. Woah! We *are* a bunch of junkies, aren’t we? Thank goodness for good ole’ plurk – not always faithful, not always reliable, and always toting around a karma mistress who happens to be a huge bitch, but Hey! it’s there today.

I know this post is just blah blah blah – sorry!

It looks like Twitter is back up, but not fully feeling 100% better. Also apparently the outage was caused by Denial of Service Attack (DDoS). I don’t even know what that is. But welcome back Twitter – feel better soon!
