Twitter down due to DDoS attack

Just a quick post to say that if you’re having trouble getting into Twitter today it’ll be because the site is currently experiencing a Distributed Denial of Service attack. This is when a site is overloaded with maliciously generated requests and ends up being unable to respond to any requests at all.

For all the latest news, head on over to Mashable. And I’ll hopefully see you back on Twitter soon :)

Update: Twitter is back up, but according to still defending against and recovering from attack.
