Twitter, Blogger, Facebook, and Livejournal were all hit by a denial of service attack at the same time Thursday morning just to deny service to one person, a Eurasian blogger named "Cyxymu".  Twitter wasn't able to handle the attack and went offline for a few hours, but the other services managed to deny the deniers and stay online.  The attack was launched from Abkhazia, a disputed territory between Russia and the Republic of Georgia, in order to keep the Georgian user Cyxymu from expressing his opinions.
