Twitter, Facebook and LiveJournal.com back up after online attack...
If you were all a-twitter because you couldn't tweet Thursday, Twitter away!
The social networking site is back online.
Hackers crippled Twitter, Facebook and LiveJournal in a denial of service attack that shut down or slowed service for hours.
The web site Cnet reports that the attack may have been launched by Russian hackers trying to keep a blogger from the eastern European country of Georgia from expressing support for his country.
