I accidentally came across twitter.rs while googling. Is it the same as twitter.com? What is the purpose of it? What does .rs stand for?

.rs is the Top Level Domain for Serbia.

Performing a trace route on both the Twitter.com & Twitter.rs domains both resolve to the same IP schema and the same domain.

Domain: xe-10-0-0.smf1-er2.twttr.com

IP: 199.16.159.53

I can only imagine that Twitter have registered the domain as a play on words for "Twitterers" and/or "Twitters" or something of that ilk.
