Another Day, Another Twitter Outage

The big Xbox 360 Dashboard update is waiting for you

Just as users and the entire Twitter developer ecosystem was getting back on its feet after last week’s multi-day outage, Twitter goes down again.

The outage last week, which was caused by a DDOS attack, started at around 6 am California time on Friday and went through the weekend. And even when Twitter had periodic uptime, third party apps were still shut down.

As usual, we provide a handy list of things to do while fretting about Twitter. Of course, you could choose to work, since it is the middle of a business day, but let’s not go crazy just yet.

Update: It’s back! Third party apps are still down, though. They always take the hard hit. And Twitter is calling this an “attack” – “Update (12:17p): We’re back up and analyzing the traffic data to determine the nature of this attack.”
