Has Libyan intelligence taken down Twitter?

Twitter is down just as the Tweeting from Benghazi was getting interesting. Not known for its tolerance of free speech and reporting what is left of Gaddafi's dictatorship has warned 'western' journalists that they will be treated as 'outlaws' - a dictatorial sub-text of 'if you try and report what is going on we will shoot you'.

Let's hope not too many people get shot trying to report on how many innocent people are getting killed so that Gaddafi can exit as a 'martyr' - the question being what cause does he think he is being a martyr to?

Libya ranks at number 160 (of 178) in the Reporters Without Borders Press Freedom Index - more on this from Menassat
