Twitter Denial of Service and the Georgia Conspiracy

7th Aug 2009 News, Industry News, Social Media, Twitter Less than a minute to read

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?
