Stormscale, Turalyon, Silvermoon and Ravencrest are experiencing the same issues which affected the realms in the Vindication battlegroup earlier. The issue you describe is indicative of a connection problem, which as per my second quote above is most likely related to the issues Blizzard is currently experiencing.

Twisting Nether should be on that list. Me and a lot of other people in my guild have had a lot of lag and latency in the last couple of weeks. Also a lot of people in my guild have had DC problems that they didn't use to have.
My self I used to play with 25-35 ms latency, but during the last couple of weeks it's around 100 ms (only my latency in wow that has gone up, it's the same as it used to be in other games).
And our realm forum and on the Technical Support forum there is a threads about the huge lag everybody on Twisting Nether seems to experience in Orgrimmar and other places in game.
A few quotes from does threads:
"unplayable atm, really annoying"
"Ye i just had to do some bussines last night in Orgrimmar and the lag was so anoying,i just took the Zep for Undercity.I think this lag is getting worse after the realms broke down the last weekend."
"The lag is insane right now. Really unplayable. it took me legit 2 minutes to load Auctioneers. This needs to get fixed and fast. its not even this bad on stormscale..."
"same issue I have 9000 world ms in capital cities"
"I've tried re logging, waiting 10 minutes, done all the deleting cache etc, this along with the ever worsening lag in Ogrimmar where its now pretty much unplayable imo."
"No I don't want to take 3 seconds + per item to retrieve mail or move items from bags to bank, no I don't want to wait 3 second + for the npc's or mailboxes to actually appear"
"Trade chat, guild chat are full of comments from people about these issues, so please lets not pretend its all our end, the problem is obviously something your end"
"This isn't a localized issue and everyone on the server is experiencing the lag from what i am hearing. I can't even go to orgrimmar during normal hours and the only time it gets bearable is at 4am server time when no one is on."
"I've been experiencing this lag in Orgrimmar for over a week, Jade Forest is an issue now as well."
"Well i have just factory reset my £2500 gaming rig 1ce wow is installed ill tell u if i still have issues. if i do. its blizzard lol Im on twisting nether and it sucks bum atm"
"Jade Forest is worse now, can't level my Shaman at all."

How about the issues with Twisting Nether, are you working on does?
I installed some of the game yesterday and except from the first time logging in it didn't ask me for my authenticator even though it asks for it for my account management page. I can't download any of the game with the launcher now and when i run wow from the exe i can't login at all. Maybe that's all tied together. I hope you can fix it soon.
