Twitter and Livejournal completely fell over around an hour ago, and Facebook has been bouncing up and down like a yo-yo. News sites and blogs are strangely silent about it all. TechCrunchers are speculating a little.
DDoS, domino effect, outlandish coincidence, or something else? Who knows? All I know is that good old IRC and Dreamwidth are keeping my chatter needs satisfied for now.
Update: These graphs from DownRightNow (for livejournal and twitter ) are kinda neat, though I can’t vouch for their accuracy. Certainly Twitter seems to have been dead as a doornail, not just a little bit glitchy.
