Update to the big ongoing Twitter outage that has brought the service down since at least 6:00 am California time today: It’s a DDOS attack. That’s way more exciting than run of the mill outages that have plagued the site since forever. Stay tuned.
Update: As of 8:16 Twitter is partially live again.
Update 2: Twitter has updated it’s status page saying the site is back up, yet they are still defending against the attack.
Update 3: Outage moves into day 2.
