Twitter is over capacity

I just wanted to check something on Twitter right now and got this nice looking web page:

Twitter over capacity

The page actually looks great. I guess they really were prepared for such shortages (or thought this might happen often enough that the page had to look good).

Wondering if it because of and increasing popularity of their social website or just because of some other technical issues. Anyway there’s even a support page showing this whale and other great looking error screens. Since I see a whale and not a robot, it’s probably that there are two many people currently tweeting or reading tweets.

Now that I’ve seen this, I need to change my 404 page… The one I have currently is kind of embarrassing in comparison to the whale or robot page…
