Twitter down after DOS attack

Twitter is down after a denial of service attack. The site has so far been down for a couple of hours, and the company has confirmed on its status blog that it is currently defending against a DOS attack.

Facebook is also experiencing problems, probably after a rush of Twitter traffic went to the site. Twitter says it will post an update on the situation shortly.
