Then what will the mere cyber mortals do? I for one can't imagine a life without tweeting and facebooking. Damn, I'm pathetic.

Anyway, bnoth Twitter and Facebook were reportedly hacked yesterday, resulting in Twitter being unavailable for at least an hour; the microblogging service's status blog helpfully reports that the company has no idea what's going on.

Facebook, on the other hand, has been spitting out error messages and intermittently cutting off people's inboxes, our staff has noticed.
