    My OS is Windows 8
    I use Google Chrome as my default browser but this problem persists with Firefox and IE as well. As of right now facebook.com, twitter.com, and twitch.tv will not load at all. The worst of it all is these are the three sites that I most commonly use. I was able to use all of them perfectly fine last night before i went to bed, and now they will not load at all, while other sites load perfectly fine. When i run a ping test through the CMD prompt for these sites

    Here are some troubleshooting tips I have tried already:
    Check if theirs a browser update (none needed)
    Clear cache, cookies, history, etc...
    Run a malware scan (0 threats detected)
    Run a Virus scan (o threats detected)
    Try opening page while using https instead of http
    Flush DNS through CMD prompt

    Once again only these select few websites wont load while all others work perfectly fine..
    Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated. This has been going on for nearly 3 hours now.

    That is almost certainly an ISP problem
    several US ISPs appear to be having network difficulties today and it is likely that they are all using the same routing
    Facebook and Twitter are definitely affected from many locations
    All you can do is wait for it to clear up
