Multiple users have emailed MacRumors and posted on Twitter that they are having difficulties sending and receiving iMessages.
Both iMessage and FaceTime were down earlier this week for several hours, though Apple's Services Status page does not indicate any problems as of 7:30AM Pacific time.
Update: Apple has updated its system status page indicating issues with both iMessage and FaceTime.
Update 2: Apple's status page indicates that the issue has been resolved as of 9:07 AM Pacific time, although we are still seeing scattered reports of problems.

Apple still seems to suck at online services. This is fact, not trollbait for what it's worth.
Why would I trust iCloud documents in the cloud again?
Oh right, I don't.
Dayum, Apple. Fix your internet operations.
Google's penetrating your turf - design, whilst you're slacking getting internet operations working.

It's not all just nice new candy features that look pretty.
Not everyone connects to the same server.
Considering Apple's track record with its online services, why would you assume it's a problem on your end?
So they don't even have a development environment for testing? If that's the case, Apple's services are in worse shape than anyone could imagine.
