Hackers slowed Twitter to a standstill early on Aug. 6, frustrating millions of users. For the culprits, all it took to snarl the popular social-networking site was one of the oldest tools in the Internet hacker handbook: the distributed denial-of-service attack (commonly shortened to DDoS), a method that has been used to crash some of the Web's largest sites, including Yahoo! and CNN.
The latest from the main nest at Twitter - 'some Twitter clients are unable to communicate with their API, and many users are unable to tweet via SMS.'
On July 29th I read an article on Network World that revealed flaws in the way some mobile-phone networks handle short message service signaling data that could leave them open to a new range of attacks. . . . ironic.
This morning I read this article from PC Magazine . . . Twitter's Down and It's All Your Fault.
Seems as though this could be another tweetless day. . . . 0_o

If you are on facebook, twitter or linkedin - you know that my business hinges on social media. . . and as you can see from the last few posts - I have been busy trying to share news related to twitter and facebook outages and issues to keep everyone up to date.
I will continue to post links to relevant stories as they are made available. . . as well as make you laugh. . . or atleast try to.
And I promise not to waste your time with a fancy blog post trying to convince you that someone from Mashable is a guest blogger or that I am an expert in anything. I am not. I am not a 'guru' or 'pro' at social media - I simply want to share information that I think maybe useful to you. . . it's that simple. And today that information just happens to be related to tools I use on a daily basis. I know how vital social media is to *my* business and thought you would like to know why twitter and facebook are down.
Now, since we have some time on our hands until the Social Media Meltdown is over . . . . I think it's time to fix another cup of coffee and get back to work. What do you think?
(for those of you who need entertainment this site should keep you busy until twitter is up again)
