Twitter is Struggling Again – Unexpected Downtime

Twitter has been having really hard time recovering it seems from the DDoS attack. I am having contantly hard time accessing Twitter today. It is not working and I tried it through proxy and still no luck.

Twitter Status says the following:

We’re actively working to bring the site back online following an downtime that started a couple minutes ago.

As you all know, few days ago Twitter was among one of the sites that took the impact of reported geopolitical internet DDOS  attack. The site was down or was very slow for more than 24 hours.

I am not sure if this is happening all over again but if you are relying on Twitter to get your messages out, this may not be a good day.

Is this a Twitter System Failure? Are they not scaled enough to handle such large volume? There are lots of unanswered questions and I will let you decide. Leave a comment if you have something to add.

These are the images I got this morning when trying to reach Twitter.com
