IS TWITTER BEING JAMMED?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All this last week Israel's "Megaphones" have fought a battle on Twitter for world opinion regarding the attack on the aid flotilla and the subsequent collapse of the blockade at the Egyptian border; a battle Israel's shills have been losing. Then today, twitter is suddenly unavailable, being jammed with far too many tweets to function either through twitter.com or through the API. Maybe it is just a coincidence, but I do not view networking that goes down when it is most convenient for the tyrants of this world as a matter of luck. Israel has the highest per-capita concentration of hackers in the world, and this downtime for twitter is certainly very convenient for them.

I wonder how long it will be before the "problem" is fixed.

UPDATE: The web interface to twitter is starting to work sporadically, but the API is still reporting it is overloaded and unavailable.

UPDATE 2: Twitter starting to work, although many functions disabled.
