Hopefully faceache stays down. If it could tske twitter and instacrap with it, would be much appreciated

Someone pushes out a fudged configuration that bodges peering to FB's network; some poor SOB's then need to get onsite (unless them have remote access but i would assume not in this case due to time frame) to fix said issue.
Edit - Someone, supposedly from FB, commented on Reddit that it was a BGP config issue...
