Twitter was disrupted Thursday night by attackers who hacked Twitter’s domain name servers and rerouted Twitter traffic as well as posting their own banner on the micro-blogging services page. The service returned to normal by Friday morning.

Technology blog Mashable, attributed the attack to a group claiming to be the “Iranian Cyber Army.” Judging by the graphic they left, it appeared to be a hacktivist attack.
