What if alien destruction hit the Net?

I just had an idea that's either A) horrible, B) awesome or C) BOTH.

So Cort announced (like here on Facebook) "We've finally gone as obvious as you've all expected we were. July 2nd at the Bagdad, ID4."

Independence Day: Quite possibly the acme of aliens-in-giant-ships-arrive-and-start-blowing-up-everything flicks. No bones about it, ID4's warts and all, I really like it, and I'm honestly pretty jazzed that it'll be on the big screen again (and on the anniversary of its original July 2nd, 1996 release, no less).

So the idea I had: What if the aliens invaded not only the world, but also the Internet?

So in a friend's Facebook game post, where the friend said
I'm building a house in My Vineyard. Will you help me? I need lots of friends to help me build it. If you visit my vineyard, you can help by clicking on my house!!
I wrote
Look out. The ID4 aliens will come along and destroy it.
See? That could get deeply obnoxious REALLY QUICKLY. But I want to picture that: aliens suddenly appearing on web pages, lasers blasting away blog entries and MySpace players and LOLcats and Foursquare wins ("EllipticalAss146 is now the Mayor of the Holgate 24-Hour Fitne...wait, that an alien ship? It's warming up its lasers? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO") and the entirety of AOL and and and...

Me likes explosions.

Edit! I couldn't resist one more mention. Adam Rosko (who was at T2 last night) tweeted
I feel weird this morning. Remedy: Yard Work.
I replied
Good, 'cause you can't wait for the weeds to be blown away BY FRICKIN' ALIENS. ;-)
Okay, NOW I'll stop. Any further alien online destruction will be by actual aliens.
