When Nerds Attack!
Thanks for all the email. Lots of it. Yes, today a group apparently celebrating the ESPN change of social media policy flooded the Twitter website and effectively shut it down. Gee, that certainly is brave.
Click here for the official Twitter notices. These "denial of service" attacks basically flood a website with traffic and block the normal flow of information. Click here for a C-Net update on the situation.
Sorry for the hassles, these things tend to come and go in the Internet world. No real theories yet on who would benefit from taking the time and expending the effort to block Twitter access.
We will update the Twitter status and any additional news that breaks on the new social media guidelines put in place on Tuesday by ESPN. We welcome your comments below.
