The Twitter denial of service attack is still keeping some users from posting tweets, although most of the people I’ve spoken to seem to have no issues. The official blog has some more information on the subject, and the Status Blog is of course a bit more technical. So in other words, don’t freak out if you can’t send your breakfast tweets or whatever, it’s just some nasty person trying to bring Twitter down.
More: LiveJournal and Facebook also affected.

That’s right, Twitter is down. I’m sure most of you already noticed, reloading those lists and resending tweets to the left and right. Hopefully the downtime will be short, but it’s over 30 minutes already which is bad enough.
Update: Twitter is fighting a denial of service attack.
