As reported yesterday – Twitter Has Denial of Service Attack – the micro-blogging site was taken down yesterday along with Facebook and LiveJournal.
The conspiracy theories have started and Mashable have just posed the question about whether this DoS was targeting one man, a blogger in Republic of Georgia with the username Cyxymu.
All very interesting and, of course, we’ll probably never really know the truth of what’s happened here. Twitter, though, have certainly suffered and will no doubt be undertaking a serious review of their security.
Let us know what you think. Was Twitter targeted as part of cyber-terrorism?
The world of football has learnt two important lessons about the Internet in as many days. After yesterday’s announcement that Tranmere Rovers were available to buy on eBay, Tottenham Hotspur striker Darren Bent made the kind of Twitter faux pas that would shame Habitat.
First up Tranmere Rovers though. The small Wirral based club with a big reputation for giant killing may be League 1 also-rans, but they came into focus when their owner reacted furiously to their attempted sale on eBay. At $10m for an opening bid you wouldn’t have thought it would be much of an issue, but Chairman Peter Johnson thinks differently suggesting it’s “not a second hand bike we’re selling.”
