Talking tech since 2003

Twitter-based songs are nothing new, but, that didn’t stop me from creating my own based on the recent DDoS attacks against Twitter and other social services such as Facebook.  Twitter seemed to have suffered the worse with regards to being able to mitigate the attack.  Their servers were completely inaccessible for quite some time on and off spanning over a two day period.

Downtime on Twitter is nothing new as many tweeters are familiar with.  If you are relatively new to Twitter then you’ll understand what I’m talking about sooner or later, unless, of course, Twitter figures out a way to manage their servers.

The song is based on “The Real Slim Shady” by Eminem.  I liked it so I recorded it.  I know I can’t sing so save those comments! Anyway, watch the video and if you like it feel free to share it around the web. I have included the lyrics below.


The lyrics:

May I have your attention please?
May I have your attention please?

Will the real DDoS’er please stand up
I repeat, will the real DDoS’er please stand up
We’re gonna have a problem here

Ya’ll act like you never saw twitter down before
Jaws on the floor, like ev and biz just burst in the door

And started screamin’ worse than before
They use their social force,
It’s the return of the tweet, Ah wait, no way, you’re kidding, he didn’t just say what I think he did, did he?
And Jack D said, nothing you idiots, jack d’s locked in twitter’s basement!

Look at them, walkin’ around grabbin’ they’re you-know-what to type to you know who,

Yeah, i probably got a couple of tweets up in my head, but what’s worse, twitter is still down,

Its times like this where I wanna get on Twitter and just let loose but I can’t, cuz the servers down…what the hoot!

The server setup sucks, the server setup sucks, and if twitter’s lucky, it’ll just be a little hiccup,

And that’s the message they deliver to all media outlets,
And expect us not to know what a hacker really is

of course they’re gonna know the secrets behind twitter by the time they hit the 4th grade,
They got TechCrunch, don’t they?

We ain’t nothing but tweeters, well some of us addicts, who tweet round the clock,
And can’t be stopped,

But if twitter cant handle web traffic
Then there’s no reason that it could make it through a DDoS

But if you feel like I feel, I got the antidote,
Tweeps wave your iPhone’s, sing the chorus and it goes,

I’m the real attacker, yes I’m the real attacker,
All you other attackers are just imitating
So won’t the real attacker please stand up,
please stand up, please stand up?

Cuz I’m the real attacker, yes I’m the real attacker
All you other attackers are just imitating
So won’t the real attacker please stand up,
please stand up, please stand up?
