At first I thought it was just me. I restarted my DNS server after noticing intermittent connection issues. But nope! It looks like Facebook, Twitter and a handful of other sites are currently down in parts of the United States. At least here with Time Warner in NYC, and according to and DownForEveryoneOrJustMe.

How on earth are we expected to tweet our frustrations with Twitter being down?! It's been quite an extended period of time so far, too. At least a half hour ago since I first came onto the computer and noticed, so we're not talking about a 30 second blurp here.

It quit working at almost exactly 10am eastern time here in Maine.

Yeah, there's a massive TW outage that's affecting both FB and Twitter. But Google+ still works :)

Looks like you will have to vent the old fashion way.
