twitdown.pngNormally we’d ask you to tweet us about issues like this”KRON4 anchor Mark Danon said after a segment this morning “but Twitter’s down….You can’t tweet us now, but maybe later.”

Ignoring for a moment how unspeakably vulgar that sounds, yeah, it’s true: Twitter is reportedly undergoing a denial of service attack, and though their blog says the site is “back up,” after the outage, which started at about 6 this morning, it does seem to be more up and down and up and down again.

You guys are probably keeping a closer eye on this than we are, if you hear any updates, please don’t hesitate to drop them in the comments.
