I couldn’t give two shits about a Facebook, but whassamado w/o my Twitter?! It was just reported on ABC Channel 7, & Twitter posted this message on their blog:

On this otherwise happy Thursday morning, Twitter is the target of a denial of service attack. Attacks such as this are malicious efforts orchestrated to disrupt and make unavailable services such as online banks, credit card payment gateways, and in this case, Twitter for intended customers or users. We are defending against this attack now and will continue to update our status blog as we continue to defend and later investigate. [SOURCE]
