If you look at the time/date stamp on those thousands of twitter messages you will see they all occur around the same timeframe when iMessage is down. Details are important if you want to imply an issue exists.
Since a wide-spread issue does not exist, the problem must be with your device or account.
Start by disabling iMessage on your device and then re-enable it.

Unfortunately the "time/date stamp" has been over the last two days specifically. The problem is not only with my device, but with the, currently, 323,000 tweets that have tweeted about "iMessage not working" over the past two days. Not to be rude, but I'd hope before you make a comment like that you yourself checked twitter. Not to mention I said I have been through everything in hopes to see if it is my device, including something as simple as turning iMessage on and off. They have told me the problem is not with my device already, but they have said that the problem is not a big problem, which it is. iMessage is becoming very unreliable, and although it does not affect everyone it is begining to affect a lot of people.

I'm pretty sure I'm having the same problem. It happened out of nowhere today. It sent one minute and then the next it didn't. I could recieve them but not send its as if they would just disappear.

I am having the same over the last couple of days. Starts as imessage then becomes SMS, nothing to do with signal. Have disabled, re-enabled, turned phone off and on again, airplane mode on/off...still no joy. Hope it is fixed soon!

Hey Barnyeard - I've been having the same trouble... it works on my iPad but not my iPhone - strange. also I'm in Australia - not the USA so its obviously a huge problem.
I was on the phone to Apple last night and they could not fix the issue without Erasing all Content and Settings which i'm not prepared to do just yet...
Hopefully there will be a fix for this shortly....
Hey Seanzies. I did end doing a full reboot yesterday and I thought that didn't work. But a friend randomly message me and it worked...Just make sure you back up before rebooting It takes no time at all.

I am still having a problem. Apple keeps telling me it has nothing to do with them but it is obviously a widespread problem, and because Apple does not see a problem within themselves they will not really search for an answer. Also, a lot of people are probably just waiting for a fix instead of taking the issue to Apple. It has been a month and nothing has been fixed for me. My friend who is also having the same issue called and they told him the problem was with my phone, except, when I called the problem was with his phone and not my phone. So, clearly they are not nearly prepared to deal with the issue, or to accept the problem is in fact with them.
Apple will never admit to a problem.. I literally had to reboot my whole phone. Make sure you do a back up first. It didn't work right away but a friend sent me a message by chance about half hour after it was rebooted and its worked ever since.
Here's how I fixed the issue.
I did an iCloud backup
Did a full reset
Restored backup and guess what.... it didn't fix the problem.
However.... here is what did fix the problem
I went into Settings --> Messages
Listed under the "Send & Receive" button it only showed one address listed.
On the 'You can be reached by iMessage at' it only had my email address there with a check mark. My phone number was unchecked but i couldn't check it for some reason. So what I did was click on my Apple ID at the Top and choose view account. Entered in my password and that made the phone number show as checked. Then I started getting iMessages on my iPhone again. If that doesn't work. Click on Apple ID at the top and choose LOCATION
thats a different issue than what I had.
My issue was iMessages were only going to my iPad and not my phone. It was a all the sudden thing that occured for me as it was working fine a couple weeks ago
