I’ve just started twitting at twitter, and it didn’t take me too long to see the popular screen of death from twitter. Well, maybe not that serious, but it’s basically just a service overhaul. But yes, we do get a polite message telling us that:
Twitter is over capacity.
Too many tweets! Please wait a moment and try again.
plus a cute picture too!
Lesson learnt: Bow gracefully when you can’t meet expectation (sometimes) and people do understand that it’s no big deal anyway.
