image thumb23 DDOS played its role in Twitter/Facebook downtime

Twitter had a terrible day and it wasn’t just Twitter, but other social services including Facebook suffered the same. Though the downtime that Facebook went through wasn’t as prolonged it did affect quite a lot. Reports held a massive DDOS attack responsible for the downtime and both Facebook and Twitter are trying to figure out the real cause behind this. I guess the outage was quite sporadic at Facebook unlike Twitter where it was much widespread (as usual).
