Ongoing DoS attacks are affecting both my Twitter client AND my tweets.
Ahh, it reminds of olden days when Twitter was down more than it was up. ;-P
iTweet.net has been down since yesterday morning (with a few short reprieves) due to the DoS attacks that are happening. I'm keeping an eye on it and will update this post when service is restored.
Adding to the confusion, I am not able to post any tweets from Twitter.com or even via SMS, so I am unable to respond to those of you who have asked me what is happening. Sorry! I hope you've subscribed to my blog's RSS feed.
Twitter has confirmed that the downtime is only affecting some clients, also that SMS is unavailable for some users, and that they are working on the issue. I guess I'm just lucky enough to fall into both categories!
Update: iTweet.net is back online, after some changes from Twitter and some refactoring on my end to accommodate those changes. Yippeee!
