Twitter Hacked And DNS Records Compromised

Did you have problems accessing Twitter earlier? No worries, the site's DNS records were compromised but the company is on top of the situation and no user information was affected.

At 20:49 UTC, our DNS provider experienced an issue in which it appears DNS records for various organizations were modified, including one of Twitter’s domains used for image serving, twimg.com. Viewing of images and photos was sporadically impacted. By 22:29 UTC, the original domain record for twimg.com was restored. No Twitter user information was affected by this incident.
