Denial of Service? Aw!
DDoS attack (Denial of Service), which paralyzed them and still paralyzes them at present. Apparently, after the #podestaemails14 came out, this massive DDoS attack hit not just Twitter but Amazon, Spotify, Paypal, Netflix and others, none of whom I feel any sympathy for since I have massive issues with most of them.
But considering I'd had three accounts shadowbanned or censored on two consecutive days, this is how I look at Twitter's present situation:
Welcome to my world, you fascist cunts. Sucks being me, doesn't it?
(Addendum: Apparently, this attack in global in scale. A major rerouting and traffic management company named Dyn just north of me in New Hampshire, resolved a massive DDoS attack a few hours ago then a few hours later found itself fending off another attack. So, whatever miscreant(s) is doing this, it's relentless. It's serious enough so that the Dept.of Homeland Security is closely monitoring this situation.
So if you live on the east coast like me, you're basically fucked if you social network on Twitter or Reddit, buy or sell shit on Amazon (although they seem to have resolved their issue), watch TV or movies on Netflix, listen to music on Spotify or do your banking, as I do, on Paypal.
