Well, I guess that explains why my go to Twitter sources for breaking news don't seem to be functioning.

My Twitter seems to be working just fine. Mobile user though, so that might explain things.

No it's not. They would never be able to pull that off.

It looks like the attackers are moving from targeting DYNs NYC datacenter to the SF one.

My guess is that this is a response from Russia in reply to our Idiot-in-Chief's public threats of a cyber attack against them.

Never say never. The net's DNS system is actually one of it's biggest vulnerabilities.

I saw some interesting leaks on twitter before I went to bed last night about the Clinton campaign colluding with journalists to push the Bernie bro narrative. Maybe they didn't want it to go wild on twitter today so they pulled the plug.

Twitter isn't working for me in LA, been down all morning. Some other websites didn't work either, the Guardian for example.

Twitter managed to stay up somehow during all those revolutions it helped cause, I don't think this is anon, it's too big to be anything but a state actor.

Yes, but Anonymous would never pull it off without a massive team. And they constantly use twitter as their main source.

It's state sponsored.

It seems like twitter is the main target here? If 4chan goes down I will know to head for the hills.
