Twitter attacked again by hackers

August 12, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Twitter Inc., the website that lets people post updates through 140-character messages, said it was attacked again Tuesday by hackers after a series of assaults that hobbled the site last week.

"We're back up and analyzing the traffic data to determine the nature of this attack," San Francisco-based Twitter said on its blog.

Twitter was the target of a so-called denial-of-service attack last week along with Facebook Inc. and LiveJournal Inc.
