Twitter has been down for about 5 minutes now.

New Info: Twitter went down for about 15 minutes this afternoon, all is well again.
As to why it went down, we'll find out soon....

Final Update (Source: Twitter): "Due to an error in a routine change, Twitter was not available from 1:08pm PDT to 1:33pm PDT. We rolled back the erroneous change as soon as we identified the issue. Additionally, some users may have experienced Tweet delivery delay from 1:33pm PDT and 1:53pm PDT. We apologize for the inconvenience."

Bring on those Kardashians! (Twitter was much better before it went mainstream and the marketing industry destroyed it, but that's best reserved for another feed. :))

I deactivated my twitter account a while ago - I haven't missed it one iota. Perhaps you can take this outage and see how critical it is :)
