↵Today has turned into the social media apocalypse. Twitter has been down most of the day and Facebook also suffered a brief outage thanks to a DDoS attack. (This was also what hit the Gawker blogs earlier this week.) With so many athletes using Twitter as a way to fulfill their daily attention needs, how are they getting by today? In one of those brief instances when Ron Artest was able to get through on Twitter, he posted his phone number (832-260-8192) where people could call him. The results of that are posted above in that video, which is basically a long promo for some pop star he's "promoting." And yes, I'm calling right now.
