Twitter over capacityI find it peculiar that every morning this week as I logged into Twitter, I was greeted with this same image – a whale being hoisted out of the water by a bunch of tweety birds.  I’ve certainly encountered this image before, but not with the same frequency as this week.  I can only assume that this is a good problem for Twitter.

I can only imagine that Twitter is in the process of beefing up their computing power to meet the growing demands of micro-blogging.  They must be so inundated with tweets that servers are simply melting.  Is anyone else getting this message frequently?  Come on, let it out….
