Twitter is down - what do we do!?

The Twitter social network has toppled, with the service totally inaccessible at the moment on desktop - get thee to Facebook
Twitter is down. This is not a drill.
The short form social service which launched in 2006 is totally offline this morning, with a cute little robot who appears to have lost one of his pinchers. For some reason...
Yes he's a cute little fella but this is a screen which Twitter doesn't want you to see very often, and the down time for the service has been limited over the last few years. Right now this appears to be a global outage, and one which effects the desktop and mobile versions of Twitter, as well as third party apps.
There has been no official word from Twitter yet, more as it happens.
