The Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) claimed to hacked into Twitter, Huffington Post and NY Times’ registry accounts, contact details, and more especially, DNS records. Modifying Domain Name Server (DNS) records of a domain will allow #SEA to redirect visitors to any site of their desire.
What is Twitter’s stance on their claim? Twitter published a status about this issue on Tuesday 27th August, 2013. In which they only mentioned twimg service.

At 20:49 UTC, our DNS provider experienced an issue in which it appears DNS records for various organizations were modified, including one of Twitter’s domains used for image serving, twimg.com. Viewing of images and photos was sporadically impacted. By 22:29 UTC, the original domain record for twimg.com was restored. No Twitter user information was affected by this incident.
While Syrian Electronic Army tweeted that they have hacked Twitter:
Hi @Twitter, look at your domain, its owned by #SEA http://t.co/ZMfpo1t3oG pic.twitter.com/ck7brWtUhK
