Unexplained network outages appear to have hit Time Warner Cable's 12 million American internet service customers around 6 a.m. EST this morning. In keeping with the company's (terrible) reputation, they have no estimate as to when everyone will be back online.
We're working to restore services to all areas as quickly as possible; no ETR. Tweets will be delayed while this is addressed.

It is Gawker's official position that Time Warner Cable is shitty and evil.
Update, 8:24 a.m.: It appears service has been restored, with Time Warner claiming "an issue with our Internet backbone created disruption with our Internet and On Demand services."
