    Internet Blackout

    Yeap, Twitter's out, gone, for me.

    Oh my God this is sort of spooky. Nobody knows as of yet who's launched the attack??

    They are still working on figuring who initiated the attack. I haven't heard them name any names yet.
    I'm sure Hillary will say its Russia sooner or later. A pretty solid DDoS hit though!

    Blizzard servers also recently had a bunch of issues with DDoS attacks, I wonder if its all the same people.
