The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Posted on: August 7, 2009

Just about everyone is familiar with the proverb “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” and today, Twitter, Facebook, and Google may have bonded over it.  Rumors indicate that the three companies are jointly trying to determine what was behind some denial of service attacks.

As many people noticed, Twitter suffered an outage this morning.  Facebook experienced intermittent issues, too, and there were reports of problems with Blogger.  Indeed, someone or something seemed to have it in for all sorts of social media sites.

It would make sense for their corporate parents to team up, then, and Adam Ostrow reports, “[A] source close to the situation tells us that Twitter, Facebook, and Google . . . are working together to determine the root of what has been exposed as a deliberate and simultaneous attempt to take down some of the web’s most popular social media sites.”
