Twitter Over Capacity? Did I Miss Some News Story?

Maybe I don't use Twitter enough to have seen this before, but I was logging out and had this screen come up:

Twitter over capacity message

There isn't even any big breaking news story? I thought when Michael Jackson's death fried Twitter they learned how to "upscale" their servers on the fly. Guess it was just a glitch, or someone is doing another DOS attack on it. But the fact that they have this nice graphic ready to go means they know they're not up to the task of handling all the traffic they're getting these days, right?
