Twitter has been down for more than one hour today and I suddenly noticed an increased productivity from my peers… any correlation?
Maybe that’s related to the latest “worm”, where thousands of users were posting “Today was so exciting! Made $124 in 20 minutes! if ur interested, ..”? Maybe not?
What we know is that Twitter is very unstable and have a big lack in security… Maybe they just got hacked?
When it is back, you can search for: http://twitter.com/#search?q=%22today%20was%20so%22 to see the effect of this latest attack.
EDIT: I was partially right. Twitter is suffering from a DOS attack: http://blog.twitter.com/2009/08/denial-of-service-attack.html#links
