look up any word, like donkey punch:
This widespread distress occurs when addicts to an online service, such as Twitter™, are suddenly left unable to connect and use it because it went down (like due to a DDOS - distributed denial of service attack). This happened yesterday, 2009.08.06. Tens of thousands were suddenly TWANKED!

Usually network admins and other BTS (behind the scenes) people work diligently to clean up the mess and get the bits flowing smoothly again right way, easing the pressure on all the TWANKERS.
Bots have raided Twitter's connection, we've all been TWANKED!

Her email was down for 20 minutes, but she acts like she's been TWANKED....
