If you haven't heard yet. Twitter is down. The social media site is being seized by a "denial of service attack" -- whatever in the hell that means.

Meanwhile, the Twitter outage has prompted a few amusing emails here at Riverfront Times. I'll begin with the email from calendar editor Paul Friswold, breaking news of the Twitter collapse to RFT staff at 11:08 this morning.

Millions of people forced to keep inane outbursts to themselves.
