Retweeted by Mathew Ingrammy twitter never went down, I had twitter all day today and honestly I didn't notice most of you were gone
Retweeted by Mathew IngramAgreed It's not my fault your heart pump is DDoSing my Netflix. Should have asked before you bought it.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramBlack Mirror is a great show to watch if you're happy and everyone around you has crippling depression and you feel left out.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramThis is the number one unsolved problem in journalism and it's been so for more than a decade.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramIt's disconcerting, dismaying, disappointing that this doesn't really bother more people.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram#DescribeTheElectionInAGiF! Posts written in ALL CAPS have the force of COMMON LAW and are BINDING on all individuals.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramThis is weird on many levels.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramDon't value Twitter the way other tech properties are. This is where news makers go to make news. It's CNN in 1989, before 1st Gulf War.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram real life - real love - real loss from the ding ho to here - i love ya kev
Retweeted by Mathew IngramEveryone thought it’d be futuristic killing machines that ended humanity, but in reality has turned out to be an angry mob of toasters.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramFacebook will decide what is newsworthy, says it still isn't a media company via @FortuneMagazine @Lin_Manuel talking about peaceful transition of power being the most important thing G.Wash did is so damn relevant rn

Retweeted by Mathew IngramAll of the above, plus the ethical, journalistic, etc. is a media company. Facebook is a media company. Facebook is a media company. Facebook is a media company.

Retweeted by Mathew Ingram1. Please don't grab women by the anything 2. Please don't refer to women as "females" 3. Please don't
Retweeted by Mathew IngramFacebook will decide what is newsworthy, but continues to claim that it isn't a media company won't load in... ...1996: "Is someone else using the phone?" ...2016: "Is Russia trying to put a dictator in the White House?" #DDoS

Retweeted by Mathew IngramWow
Retweeted by Mathew IngramEverything is everything
Retweeted by Mathew IngramYou see what happens! The U.S. hands control of the DNS over to the UN, and within a month DDoS attacks destroys the DNS!!11!!!
Retweeted by Mathew IngramATT breakup and make-up; or, time is a flat circle
Retweeted by Mathew IngramThe bull regulatory case for AT&T-TWX: it's a vertical merger, Comcast-NBCU was blessed and gives a blueprint
Retweeted by Mathew IngramToday's main takeaway: There is code floating around on the internet that makes it pretty easy to weaponize almost every connected device.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingramwhoa! Tens of millions of IPs used in DDoS attack and involved the Mirai botnet
Retweeted by Mathew IngramIf you could please disconnect your fridge from the Wi-Fi we would appreciate it. Thanks.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @CaseyNewton @MikeIsaac Also, one of you spelled "whoa" wrongToday we answered the question "what would happen if we connected a vast number of cheap, crummy embedded devices to broadband networks?"
Retweeted by Mathew IngramThe Verge published this story natively on Facebook to avoid the effects of today's DDoS attack
Retweeted by Mathew IngramSo good
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @AnnaTarkov Yes, they are massive. But I just don't see where the money comes from otherwise @AnnaTarkov Well, unless they are going to generate huge increases in revenue from subs etc., print ad revenue is in free-fall @AnnaTarkov Get costs in line with future revenuesI've spent a lot of election nights in newsrooms and it's great...but not $250 great.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramThey won't do this, of course. At least, not all at once. And maybe not at all. But they probably should insiders say WSJ and NYT both need to shed at least 30% of their editorial staff. That's about 300 people at NYT, 500 at WSJ @labboudles @rafat not sureUsually election years prop up legacy media. What is January going to look like if this starting now?
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram8/ That's why @chamath is right to argue for being more like Reddit. TWTR is an interest network not a live network, live is implementation
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @JimKopps Definitely look at what Snapchat is doing with breaking news and Live Stories in places like Iraq @rafat budgeted revenue, yesI'm hearing the cuts at WSJ are coming because paper is as much as 30% below its budget for the year, print ad revenue tankingAfter being forced to use use Facebook for almost 20 minutes during the outage, I take back everything I ever said, Twitter. Never leave.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramInstagram appears to be testing live video via @VergeI'm no PR expert but this seems like a bad way to win over the public.

Retweeted by Mathew IngramIt's real and it's spectacular - AT&T will pay near $110/shr for Time Warner, about 50/50 cash stock:
Retweeted by Mathew IngramIt can't have it both ways. Facebook IS a media company.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @mmasnick Nice!Today Twitter is all Americans using Twitter to say that they can't use Twitter.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @can @davewiner not that I can think ofInternet of shitty things
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @davewiner yes, I suppose it isWho could have predicted that consolidating much of the internet's DNS infrastructure to just a few providers would end in tears?
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @davewiner I'm sure you can :-)Why was Twitter stock up so much? All we heard about was people who didn't want to buy it twitter stock was up 7% on a day nobody could tweet says everything you'd ever need to know about the service
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram @davewiner because if it is, then it arguably has certain duties and responsibilities, which it has so far been avoidingTIL: @Wikimedia rolls our own DNS.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramSorry about the outage. I needed to temporarily borrow everyone's computing power to run some complex equations related to space stuff.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram!!! will decide what is newsworthy, but says it still isn't a media company via @FortuneMagazine Apple/Time Warner thing is not new. Not sure why it is being reported as new given today's AT&T/Time Warner ne…
