In this article “”We just #TangoDown’d http://twitter.com for 40 minutes worldwide!” said a tweet from the group called UGNazi, which has been linked to attacks on US government websites.

The term “tango down” is sometimes used in the hacker community to refer to a so-called denial of service attack which can shut down a website.

The company first acknowledged “issues accessing Twitter”, and said its “engineers are currently working to resolve the issue”.
