World Wide Panic On The Internet During #TwitterDown

Twitter was down this morning in various areas around the world giving rise to a lot of panic for those who rely on the social media site for news and conversation.

Since Twitter hasn’t been forthcoming on what caused the outage other than “technical difficulties”, there’s been a lot of speculation as to what happened. Russian and Syrian hackers are at the top of the list but those are rumors from the conspiracy fringe.

No official cause has been given as yet but I’m sure we’ll hear about it before the end of the day.
