I can'ta access with twitter acount.. Firstly, I think maybe my broadband has problem but after searching via net then I find news that twitter really extended downtime: a 30 minute outage that’s one of the longest in recent months.

This is their status :-

We are determining the cause and will provide an update shortly.
Update: we are defending against a denial-of-service attack.

We are defending against a denial-of-service attack, and will update status again shortly.

Update: the site is back up, but we are continuing to defend against and recover from this attack.

Latest status go to their website

ntivirus company Sophos explains what a DDOS is: "A denial of service attack occurs when computers bombard a website with requests for information".

"Typically hackers can control thousands of innocent users' computers centrally and command them to visit a site that they wish to flood with traffic - making it impossible for other internet users to get through. It's a bit like 15 fat men trying to get through a revolving door at the same time - nothing can move".

Maybe there's too many services provide on twitter coz this DOS attack... Hope it will repair soon.
