Bad. Don't use present perfect with a definite time. "I got up at 5am today" or "I have got up" (or even "I have gotten up")

But what if the 'today' has not ended yet?

*facepalm* Obviously 'today' has not ended.

This is a statement of fact regarding a specified and defined time. The past simple tense should be used.
