Update (1:16 p.m. EDT): The site's loading once more, for us anyway, but Twitter hasn't yet updated its status post. Stay tuned...

Original: Many users now have their Gchat back after Thursday morning's service failure, but are now facing a new blackout around lunchtime: Twitter won't load! Twitter's status website says: "Users may be experiencing issues accessing Twitter. Our engineers are currently working to resolve the issue." Even the workaround of logging in through the mobile site isn't working. Let's hope these things don't come in threes (Pinterest? Tumblr?) or people will have to actually do work today.
