    Yeah, they were being attacked. Hopefully the attackers are good at covering their traces because you can be sure twitter is coming after them.

    It was quite funny when it went down because I was adding friends to a number of accounts with multiple threads running. When it went down I was like... Is that even possible for me to bring it down? Naaaa...
