Looks like they are making a second attack

A denial of service attack this morning on DYN shut down a number of websites including Twitter, Spotify and Reddit.
Service of some major internet sites was disrupted for several hours on Friday morning as internet infrastructure provider Dyn said it was hit by a cyber attack that disrupted traffic mainly on the U.S. East Coast.

Social network Twitter (TWTR.N), music-streamer Spotify, discussion site Reddit and The Verge news site were among the companies whose services were reported to be down on Friday morning. Inc's (AMZN.O) web services division, one of the world's biggest cloud computing companies, also disclosed an outage that lasted several hours on Friday morning. Amazon could not immediately be reached for comment.

It was unclear who was responsible for the Dyn attack, which the company said disrupted operations for about two hours.
Twitter is down again around 12:30 Eastern time.
