I had seen on reddit someone said that the sites themselves were not down but, access to them was being blocked.

They said to use Tor,Open Dns, or try another connection...

So I tried my data and boom no problems..

I don't know how to do a screenshot on Windows 10. Twitter is working for me now, and this is on WikiLeaks. I don't know whether this should be believed, or not. The tweet says that Julian is alive.

Is it possible that what the internet outage is could be a little payback from wikileaks supporters?

Sorry I can't do a screen shot only a copy/paste, but these are wikileaks recent tweets....


WikiLeaks Verified account ‏@wikileaks Mr. Assange is still alive and WikiLeaks is still publishing. We ask supporters to stop taking down the US internet. You proved your point.




wikileaks The Obama administration should not have attempted to misuse its instruments of state to stop criticism of its ruling party candidate.

Why would the supporters of Wikileaks try to take down the internet? It makes no sense.

Seems odd other than being upset over JA.

Why would WL say this? Just a guess or do they know something.

Also as a Marketing & SEO guy, why not use this thing that millions will be searching for as a means to garner more publicity over something you want as many heads to look at as possible?

It's on par with Trumps use of media / events.

Everyone that I have talked to was able to get on-line using a phone. The hit was on the infastructure for doing major business. The MSM sights were down in most areas. Perhaps this is a signal to the west, a small taste of what could happen if we see too much censoring, or seeing too much weight thrown around in order to silence the truth. I'd like to think that all those hackers and truth seekers out there have all of our backs.

Hows the internet for everyone out there?
