[INFOGRAPHIC] The day the internet stood still

So what impact did the day, that the internet blacked out in protest against SOPA and PIPA have on internet users and what are the volumes of traffic it affected. The 18th of Jan will always be remembered as the day when the internet went still and if you visited Wikipedia on that day all you got was a black screen. There were many websites that participated and to get a better idea check the infographic below.With tens of millions of participants, the blackout was the largest protest in history. Congress was flooded with over 400,000 calls – or 11.5 hours of phone calls per senator. Wikipedia's blackout constituted 1% of all tweets on the 18th.
