The Twitter website is currently undergoing a considerable denial of service attack. The attack began at around 15:15 GMT (14:15 UTC).

Biz Stone published news of the attack on his blog earlier in the day. At 17:30 GMT the Twitter Status site was updated with the news that the attack was over but that outages may continue for a brief period.

There are also reports of an attack today against Facebook. But that attack was purportedly not as successful.
