As we speak now, Twitter is under a Denial Of Service(DOS) attack. No more details are available. People have been experiencing trouble accessing twitter for a few hours,but there was no confirmation on what exactly is happening. You can read here what they have to say about the incident. They are almost completely recovered but the API clients are still experiencing a timeout.

Techs suspect its a case of DDOS or Distributed DOS where the attacker causes infected computers to attack the target by sending large volumes of requests. Unconfirmed reports are coming in that Facebook is also suffering from a few glitches.

But the funny part is that some people are cosidering it as the signs of “End of Days”…lol.
