Twitter DOWN: 'Over Capacity' Fail Whale Won't Go Away!

UPDATE 2:44PM: Twitter has restored "Follower" and "Following" count.
UPDATE 12:39PM: Twitter seems to be back up--but all of the "Followers" and "Following" counts seem to have been removed. See the screenshot below:

Is it the flood of post-election tweets that's got Twitter 'over capacity?'

We're not sure what's causing the outage, but Twitter seems to have been experiencing outages for around the last hour.

Twitter wrote on its Status Blog:

We are experiencing site availability issues -- additional latency and errors -- this morning. We're working to address these issues.
