Twitter is Down due to heavy activity

 

I tried to login to twitter a while ago and it failed to load!

Guess what the error was? It was unavailable due to the extra ordinary load on the servers. I believe that twitter is being bombarded heavily by the Moldovians at the moment who are trying to keep their fellows updated through internet. Keep in mind that there are severe protests going on in the country of Moldova against their government and all the media including TV channels are state controlled.

That looks like the most busiest day for Twitter. Servers going down due to traffic is not a good thing but it is also a success parameter for a web site. Tomorrow they will be able to handle heaps more (they should have anticipated it though).
