    Twitter was not hacked. They were under a DoS attack. It takes no skill to do that, all you need is a bunch of computers (or a few decent ones with a LOT of bandwidth). In fact, there are services that will sell you a DoS attack on a site.

    If you go to the Twitter status blog it says that API apps will time out, and people using the site itself will experience slow response times.

    I learned of this earlier when SocialScope said something about it instead of updating. Shows how much we spend on our berries!

    Nothing official's been posted as yet on the Twitter status blog. Twitter Status
    "Ongoing denial-of-service attack 10 hours ago"


    Just to recap, twitter wasn't "hacked" it's been subjected to the lamest type of exploit known to computer users. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) It exploits the very thing that makes the Internet possible, and most likely done by some MySpace tweener jackalope in his mama's basement.

    Anyone can do it. :P

    Anyway no client will be reliable at this juncture because the API that UberTwitter, SocialScope(my fave)and others use is also subject to the increased server load caused by the *****(s) responsible.

    They'll get it narrowed down to where the attack is coming from and we can all go back to staring at our Berry's, er I mean "work." Yeah, that's the ticket.

    My ubertwitter was back working about an hour ago, but not now. Guess it will take a while for them to get it all straight- hopefully by morning!
