Consistent problems trying to open twitter.com in the evening

I am in NW3. 

 

Does anyone else have this problem after about 5pm?

 

All other websites open quickly and snappily, except Twitter.com. I've tried switching to OpenDNS too to rule out a DNS issue, but to no avail. What does fix it is switching to a VPN (in the US, so a completely different route, obviously).

 

It just hangs and hangs, in any browser. After a while, it'll go back to normal and load fine.

Its happening to me at the moment, Same with my friends who have SKY, TALKTALK, etc 
Think it might be a UK issue as my friend in holland is not having issues but it did not work for her when she used a UK VPN

From the tracert it looks as if the delays are off BT's network.
