Twitter Continues to Battle DDoS Attack
PC World: More than two days after experiencing a complete outage as a result of a distribute denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, Twitter and other social networking sites such as Facebook are still battling a surge in traffic related to the attack. Twitter has taken some steps to mitigate the spike in traffic and ensure that the site is not knocked offline again, but some of those steps are having an impact on third-party tools that link to Twitter through API's (application programming interface).

Cyxymu is apparently blaming the KGB and Russia for the attacks against him and Twitter. While the interruption is annoying, I'm really looking forward to finding out who orchestrated the attack.
Tried to "unfollow" someone several times via p-c this am. All failed with "Whoops, something went wrong. Refresh page and try again." Still a few issues I guess.
However, I WAS able to stop following the same person from my BB - go figure.

Tweetie is still ailing this morning also. It must

Kind of funny a couple of days before the crash I had a email saying somebody was following me, but couldn't find them on my followers list. Also I have me tweets locked so people need to be accepted by me before hand. There was no way to block them except go through there twit page and block them from there page. I don't know if it worked but I hope it did. I wonder if that has link with the problems.
