Twitter Hacked By 'Iranian Cyber Army'?

Update: Twitter is back. Here’s what cofounder Biz Stone wrote on the official Twitter blog:

“As we tweeted a bit ago, Twitter’s DNS records were temporarily compromised tonight but have now been fixed. As some noticed, Twitter.com was redirected for a while but API and platform applications were working. We will update with more information and details once we’ve investigated more fully.”

Earlier: Twitter is not loading, and it appears that hackers may be to blame. A friend passes along this screenshot of what Twitter.com apparently looked like moments ago. Twitter’s status blog — hosted on Tumblr — also isn’t loading, so it’s possible this is a DNS hack.
