You obviously don't know much about the Internet

It's all in the system of routers that control traffic on the internet. Gazillions of packets streaming and being routed everywhere - telephone conversations, browser sessions, VPNs, e-mail, twitter, videos, audio tracts, financial transactions, secure sockets, and who knows what else - each one with a little header identifying the source, destination and the kind of data encapsulated therein. These can easily be filtered by the routers - shutting down Twitter (for example) while leaving the rest of the Internet functioning normally.
