This comes on the heels of a conversation in my office about using twitter and other social media to promote a favorable article about my employer in Consumer Reports. I think it’s the competition! Either that or it was the Freemasons really angry about the whole John Quincy Adams twittering thing.
Twitter was inaccessible for several hours on Thursday morning, followed by a period of slowness and sporadic time-outs (and more outright downtime). The company is blaming an “ongoing” denial-of-service attack but has not said anything further.
