Twitter has not confirmed the outage, but websites that track the responsiveness of web servers said that an outage hit the social media website and lasted for a few minutes ending at around 1:30 a.m. Monday.

WikiLeaks posted a message to its Facebook account claiming an ongoing denial-of-service attack on its servers after reporting a brief outage.

"We are still under a DoS attack on our e-mail publication servers and it appears that Twitter is down as well, we are unable to confirm if this is an attack on twitter at this time," the post read.
