Both Friendster and Twitter have experienced downtime this afternoon:
- Watch those DNS settings! Twitter said its brief downtime was due to a DNS configuration error that impacted the entire site. The outage for Twitter is notable because it hasn’t had any in a while and survived ElectionNight traffic with no major problems. “We’ve not had an outage of this length since mid-July and will be carefully reviewing what went wrong,” the Twitter team said on the site’s status page .
- The outage at Friendster appears to be more significant, and there are reports  that it is related to power problems at its data center. The site remains offline, and a traceroute to Friendster ends at Quality Technology Services/Globix.
