That’s what I see when I go to Twitter.com now, and often for the last few hours.
Cannot find “http://www.twitter.com/” and
DNS Error - Server cannot be found.
It’s enough to make me want to log in to IM and ask, “Is The Twitter broken?” I did, too.I would have Tweeted the question to my tweeps, but it’s like the old George Carlin joke, “Honk if your horn is broken.” In this case it’s, “Tweet if Twitter is broken.”

We are investigating the problem and will update status shortly.
Update: We have found the problem and are working to correct.
Update: We have corrected a fatal software error. The site is back up.
Although it says it’s back up, I can only get on intermittently. At least there’s no white whale, I am calling in Ishmael for the next time I see it…
--- Update 30 minutes later ---
Call out Ishmael!
Twitter is over capacity.
Too many tweets! Please wait a moment and try again.
