So as you probably noticed , today there was a series of DDoS attacks that took out several major websites including Spotify, Twitter, Reddit, and Netflix. I know, I got so much work done. Well when Twitter finally came back on, people had a lot of reactions. Some were outraged or relieved, while others even made requests of the hackers, but whatever the take, they were all pretty amusing. Here’s a look at some of the best reactions. I think we all need to get out more.
The worst part of the DDoS coverage is going to be all the weird stock photos of Guy Fawkes masks

What’d you guys do while twitter was down? I passed the time by carrying out a major DDoS attack on several popular websites.

While Twitter was down I had to just say my joke to the other people on the bus and let me tell you, Twitter jokes aren’t funny in real life

Since Twitter’s down I’m liking your tweets by carving hearts on the back of a bathroom stall.

Fix credit scores and add money to our bank accounts. Do good things with your skills, don’t take down Twitter #DDos

My Twitter service was just restored. Any DDoS internet attack that takes down social media is just diabolical. DIABOLICAL I say! pic.twitter.com/3EwlrYG4WA

Twitter’s been down for hours and hours – I expect the cure for cancer to be announced any minute now.
