UPDATE: "We're focused on working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, but can confirm that the issue is not related to a DDoS attack," reads an update from Facebook.
The end is nigh, friends. Facebook and Twitter is down as the people of Twitter rise up in a period of chaos, confusion, and the feeling of being totally lost. But at least we got some really cool reaction memes out of it.
