Twitter outage allows Stephon Marbury time see his psychiatrist

A denial of service attack on the social networking site Twitter allowed NBA free agent guard Stephon Marbury some free time to see his psychiatrist for the first time since opening a Twitter account. The former All-Star, who posts as @StarburyMarbury, had been canceling all of his appointments to tweet or hold court on Ustream for hours on end. "The Twitter outage couldn't have come at a better time for Stephon," said his psychiatrist, Dr. Gerald Pheister. "He was pretty close to falling apart." After his appointment, Marbury spent the remainder of his day yelling Bible verses from a street corner and researching insane asylums with WiFi.
