    Twitter taken out

    Seems like yesterday’s Twitter outage was down to Russia. Or so says a pro-Georgian blogger, Cyxymu, who is thought to have been the target of the denial of service attack that took down Twitter and Facebook.

    Facebook’s chief security officer confirmed the attack was aimed at Cyxymu. It’s not the first time either, with the blogger being targetted last year in a similar incident.

    Meanwhile, productivity across the globe probably increased during the downtime for both Twitter and Facebook. But what did you do when Twitter was down?
